Alexander Calder's Genius Showcased By Museum-Quality Daylighting From Kalwall


Kalwall calls the balanced, glare-free, true-color rendition quality of it's daylight "Museum-Quality Daylighting". Architect Stephanie Goto used Kalwall's controlled daylight in creating an exciting space to understand the genius and art of Alexander Calder. Goto transformed three rooftop sheds in Manhattan's Chelsea district into three distinct areas, drawing visitors through the space with translucent daylighting from Kalwall skylights and clerestories. Archichitectural Record presents interesting insight in this recent profile by Clifford A. Pearson.
