Barbara Ellmann


Faceted glass in platform windscreens

Barbara Ellmann created colorful geometric patterns abstracted from the landscape and elements within the surrounding neighborhood. Through site visits, Barbara documented intersecting buildings, and various intersections and patterns to create her compositions, which were fabricated into 21 faceted glass panels and installed in windscreens on the station platforms. The works fill the platform with jewel-like color while protecting transit customers from the wind.
