Analemma Skylight

In a collaborative project with artist James Turrell and astronomer Dick Walker, SOM New York designed a skylight that would admit a spot of light into the building for a specified period each day of the year (from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.), and modeled the "analemma," or path that this spot would strike on the curved brick wall pictured at noon each day.
