I’ve grabbed photos of Cubed Curve many times on visits to New York City, but I’m concerned the sculpture won’t be around (at least in its original location) in the future.
The Rockefeller Group, owner of the Time-Life Building, has announced plans to renovate the building. Those plans include redesigning the plaza facing Sixth Avenue by removing the fountain adjacent to the building’s exterior and creating a new landscaping feature and fountain. The landscaping feature would extend atop the subway entrance on the corner of Sixth Avenue and West 50th Street. The Cubed Curve sculpture sits atop that subway entrance today.
It’s unclear what the Rockefeller Group’s plans mean for the sculpture.
