This project for the reconstruction of one of the busiest stations in the New York subway system took as its fundamental challenge the dif culty of transferring between the two subway lines that cross
on the site. Because the upper line is close to the surface, crossing over requires crossing under both this line and the line below, an impossible walk. By elevating the surface of the “plaza” above, enough space is gained for an bridge over and an enormous skylight is created to illuminate the rebuilt station below.
