TKTS Booth

Impressive glass engineering continues at the front of the ticket booth, where the glass stringer beams connect to a cantilevered glass canopy, made from the same red-tinted glass as the staircase.

Glass stringer beams rely on the support of load-bearing glass walls to hold the weight of the booth's glowing red staircase and the tourists lounging upon it. The glass pieces are connected with stainless steel brackets and pins, but there is no load-bearing metal in the structure.
