Kenzo Digital Creates an Immersive Playground at the Top of Summit One Vanderbilt in Manhattan
2022 Best of Year Winner for Installation
The tippy-top of Midtown’s buzziest new skyscraper, Summit One Vanderbilt, developed by SL Green Realty Corp., is a 65,000-square-foot playground that immerses visitors in views extending 80 miles. Glass-box balconies and elevators project out beyond Kohn Pedersen Fox’s base building envelope, levitating 90-odd stories above Madison Avenue; an open-air terrace allows enjoyment of fare from the adjacent Snøhetta-designed café; and the three-level atrium’s experiential installation by Kenzo Digital utilizes 30,375 square feet of mirrors to create the effect of infinite space—an illusion amplified by floating reflective orbs, an animated cumulus-scape, and Clouds, a floor piece by Yayoi Kusama. After dark, the vibe shifts completely, courtesy of a light-and-sound show. Heavenly!
