The new Robert J. and Suzanne Gottlieb Transit Corridor, a monumental 150-foot-long, 10-foot-wide glass-walled passageway, is an accurate outdoor public astronomical instrument built below-grade onto the west side of the Observatory. Its form echoes similar instruments from ancient temples and medieval churches but updates the concept for the 21st century. As the Sun moves across the sky each day, a six-inch, long-focal-length lens sharpens the Sun's light into a spot that moves across the walls and floor of the corridor.
GlasPro created the custom laminated film panels that stand on each side of the 150-foot-long corridor.
