The artist Pinaree Sanpitak was commissioned to create a site-specific sculpture entitled The Roof for Brookfield Place. The installation is a suspended sculpture in the Winter Garden, celebrating collaboration and coexistence. The translucent canopies, made from raw silk, glass fiber, non-woven fabric, wires, hooks, chains, and aluminum modular truss, create a temporary roof floating above the palms, giving the viewer a sense of comfort and refuge in the otherwise bustling space. The Roof will be on view from April 19 to July 5, 2017 at Brookfield Place, located at 230 Vesey Street.
