UPDATE: The Sounds Commons Living Innovation Zone closed in February 2019. Please look for other public installations on the attraction page!
Original: This interactive installation by the Exploratorium’s Studio for Public Spaces invites passersby to stop and play with sound. The installation is composed of four main sections that wind through the trees in UN Plaza. Each section features a variety of “sonic phenomena” such as mammoth chimes, xylophones, echo tubes and massive wooden pendulums. Sound Commons is temporary, installed in June 2016.
