"Light Walk designed by James Corner Field Operations illuminates this shady area of downtown and is visually active day and night, during all seasons and weather. A two-block long pedestrian-scaled steel trellis with angled, mirrored fins overhead reflects the sky (from one direction) and the activity of people walking below (from the other). Programmable LED lights extend down the trellis supports and across the pavement to create a subtle or spectacular light show (depending on the selected lighting scheme). The view is great from the skyway above as well."
