The Big Round is 7 metres wide and 7 metres tall. The Tall Long is 9 metres tall.

The Big Round, a singular expressive geometry, is stripped away from all extravagance of form and details. The Tall Long is buoyant and stretches upwards.

Through their sheer size and proportion, the Big Round & Tall Long engages the commuters to either step away in order to view it, or to simply be drawn in to a presence that is larger than the self.

In doing so, one experiences the relationship between oneself and the hyperbolic shapes, and oneself to the vastness of the station.
