Passing by the dark HSBC building, a bright red painted cube of steel balancing on one corner, draws our attention. It is the Red Cube by Isamu Noguchi in the streets of lower Manhattan, that contrasts strongly with the black building behind it and the white pavement on which the cube is positioned. All the lines of the public artwork are diagonals, while the three skyscrapers around consist of only vertical and horizontal lines. The sculpture has been balancing here since 1968 and captures the gaze of passengers, connecting art and architecture.
