Rector Gate Sculpture
Battery Park City, NY

Fifty Foot Stainless Steel and Bronze Sculpture, 1988

Mison Concepts was the lead custom metal fabricator on R.M. Fischer’s massive public work that helped inaugurate the residences at Battery Park City. To achieve the artist’s futuristic ode to New York City skyscrapers, we crafted a mix of decorative metal types, details, finishing and joining techniques, and unusual textures that underscore the fantastical, sci-fi inspired shapes. The carefully engineered arch supports a skeletal “Flash Gordon” bell-tower and suspended lighting fixture, one of the many integrated lighting components that illuminate the structure at night.
