Dan Graham's installation on the rooftop terrace of the Metropolitan Museum of Art mimics the New York skyline. The design is made from glass, and is situated amongst the garden-like surroundings on the top of the building.
According to DesignBoom, the installation is "situated between ivy shrubs, [titled] 'Hedge Two-Way Mirror Walkabout' [and] comprises [of] undulating steel curves and two-way mirrored glass." The overall look of the installation is very modern, which is perfect considering it sits on top of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Visitors can take a day wandering through the halls of the site, then head to the rooftop to take in the last installation of the day by Dan Graham. What's better is that individuals also have a view of Central Park from this location.
