The self-cleaning stainless-steel mesh offers an aesthetically pleasing contrast to the cast-iron and glass façade, while screening plant machinery and services.
As the viewing angle varies, so to do the levels of transparency and reflectivity. From ground level, where the mesh appears before the sky, it appears translucent, like a semipermeable crown. When viewed from the adjacent skyscrapers of the Hudson Yard development, the mesh sits in front of unattractive plant machinery, and is much more opaque.
