Capturing the fleeting atmosphere of a moment in place, Outlook for the Broadway station is an imaginary, saturated, color-filled landscape that references the past and present of the neighborhood surrounding the elevated station in Astoria. The laminated glass artwork highlights the native flora in the area, and the deciduous woodlands, ponds, swamps, wetlands, meadows, and conifer forests that were once dominant features in the location. The palette choices for Outlook are inspired by the current colors visible in the neighborhood, including those found in the existing architecture, storefronts, restaurants and public spaces. Carr worked closely with Peters Studios to translate her original landscape paintings into hand-painted glass to be integrated into the station facades and windows in the waiting area.
