Ziggy is an winning installation that will anchor “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer” this December. Presented by The Flatiron Partnership, this dynamic installation will be unveiled on November 18th at the intersection of 23rd Street, Broadway and Fifth Avenue. The colorful new installation is made up of painted rebar and 27,000 feet of iridescent cord. The lightweight structure will dynamically filter its surroundings with shifting patterns, color, and light. Its winding form will frame views of the Flatiron District’s many attractions and landmarks, while also serving as seating for locals and visitors seeking a moment of rest. The piece was created by Hou de Sousa, a New York-based architecture, art, and design studio focused on culturally progressive and environmentally responsible projects that foster public engagement and creativity.
