Prismatic

For Prismatic, Culligan has drawn on both West Colfax’s transportation history and its diversity. In the inflated stainless steel corner columns, he seeks to call to mind the “essence of car culture”, while each of shelters features a different colored glass, evoking the ethnic and cultural diversity of the area. Culligan designed the shelter retrofits with functionality for riders as prime consideration, as reflected in the fully enclosed glass structures, capped by a translucent roof to allow for night-time ambient light. The simplicity of the design and the ability to create a strong sense of continuity through the district were also important considerations in the selection. A big “thank you” to the invaluable contributions from our art selection committee.
