Hatch

Hatch

A little "door" surrounded by an ornate façade is located at the base of the wall of the southernmost elevator. Easily noticed by children, it evokes an Alice in Wonderland potential of going down (and up) the rabbit hatch into another world. The artwork suggests a dialogue between the construction of imaginary spaces by author Lewis Carroll and of built spaces by famous architect Louis Sullivan. As Carroll animated the movement of childhood imagination, Sullivan necessitated the elevator with his skyscrapers.
