PAULINA CTA STATION
Riveted stainless steel and brass suspended sculpture
(3’ x 11’ x 6’) and glass and stone mosaic (6’ x 15’)
Entryway, Paulina Stop, Chicago Transit System’s Brown Line
The forms mirror the fluid, ephemeral, high-energy cellular neighborhoods of the city and the connections and intersections between them which public transportation facilitates. Passengers enter the station under the stainless and brass suspended sculpture, constructed by Vector Custom Fabricating in Chicago. As they go up the stairs that split off in opposite directions, they encounter a glass wall mosaic fabricated by Franz Mayer of Munich, Germany.
