Red Cube

Red Cube appears to stand on one of its corners in the plaza of 140 Broadway
140 Broadway, New York, NY
Open to Public
What initially seems to be a fairly straightforward design, this commission from Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is a carefully articulated response to both the surrounding towers of the Financial District and open plaza spaces nearby. Noguchi’s elongated rhomboid mass in painted red steel offers its viewer a subliminal tool to harmonize the man-made canyon surroundings.
