McCullough ’10 Featured in The New York Times

As part of the Grand Concourse Beyond 100 urban planning project, Angus McCullough '10 designed the MTA "Skyway." By using cameras and projectors, the Skyway renders the sidewalk transparent, enabling passengers to see the sky from the platform below or an approaching train from above.

Angus McCullough ’10 was mentioned in a Nov. 1 New York Times article titled “Grand Visions for a Faded Bronx Boulevard.”

McCullough is participating in an exhibit titled “Intersections: The Grand Concourse Beyond 100,” at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. A result of a nine-month competition sponsored by the museum and the Design Trust for Public Space, the show focuses on seven visions for the future of the Grand Concourse in the Bronx that range from urban farms to high-tech sound barriers for a nearby freeway.

McCullough’s proposal, “Live Wired,” would create video and audio installations in strategic points along the Concourse.

The article reads, “A 24-hour image of the sky would be projected onto platform ceilings in nearby subway stations so that people underground could see the weather outside — a potentially mesmerizing way to pass the time if you’ve just missed a train. Meanwhile another video of people milling around on the platforms below would be projected onto the Concourse’s sidewalks. side from its voyeuristic appeal, the system would allow pedestrians to keep an eye out for an approaching subway train.”
