According to Green, "One of the appealing aspects of this project was the abundance of glass throughout. My initial response was to see the space filled with natural light and very open. Simultaneously, the proposed area seemed also to be a kind of transitional space between two destinations. One of my main objectives in creating a site-specific artwork was that it enhanced the qualities already apparent from the initial design concept.
Achieving the desired effect lay in using etched glass as a medium. Being primarily an artist working two dimensionally I perceived the glass walls as a drawing surface. The design illustrates travelers passing through culturally different areas of the world. One of the most satisfying points of this entire project was watching the effect of sunlight on the glass and the shadows that are cast. Both visually and conceptually the effects truly extend the artwork."
In addition to the large panels of etched glass, the project also includes 15 small wall niche â€œwindowsâ€, made of clear glass with a brightly colored interlayer, illuminated with fiber optic lighting and diffuser glass.
