Grand Lobby Glass Sculptures
This sculpture of Nikolas Weinstein was designed to unify two connecting grand lobbies of a luxurious hotel in Shanghai. A giant unfurling ribbon or calligraphic line winds its way throughout the voluminous space of the hotel. The flexible glass "fabric" rises up five stories to graze the ceiling and swoops to almost within reach as it passes over an interior reflecting pool.
