escalator as visual anchor

One of the major decisions we’ve had to make was to retain the escalator that went from ground level up to what is now called the mezzanine floor. The 40 ft long escalator became iconic in its own right, presenting itself immediately as a visual element that held the atrium on one end, and also acted as a sculptural anchor for incoming visitor traffic. The escalator is one of three elements that compose the atrium, the other two being the wall, and the third, which pulls the eye up to the upper levels is the balcony, visible in this image.
