A brand-new interactive art experience, BUILDINGS AND BLOCKS will be on display at Top of the Rock January 10th through March 13th. The installation, inspired by the skyline and shapes of New York City as viewed from Top of the Rock observation deck, features three 23-foot towers, and 37 black and white-striped pieces resembling children’s building blocks. Visitors are welcome to play, sit and interact with the freestanding blocks while taking in the breathtaking skyline views of Manhattan. This exhibit is free to all Top of the Rock ticket holders.
About BUILDINGS AND BLOCKS:
Architecture and time. Planes and lines. Figure and
ground. Vibrant towers and scattered pieces. Energy
and flow. Playful and harmonious. Pattern. Rhythm.
