The international artist team of architect Mario Madayag (WA) and artists Michael Parekowhai (NZ) and Paul Deeb (AZ) worked closely with the PHX Sky Train design and construction team of HOK Architects, Gannett Fleming engineers, and the Hensel Phelps Construction Company to integrate Blue Stratus into the station. The title refers to a low altitude cloud that forms a continuous horizontal layer. The kinetic ceiling was formed by 6,610 uniquely-shaped aluminum reflector panels attached to a sculptural steel framework with a disrupted grid at the center. The kinetic panels are painted six shades of blue and designed to move in the breeze. Lighting above the ceiling projects a slowly changing tableau of rich blue color. Deeb and a small crew hand-crafted and attached the aluminum reflector panels to the steel ceiling grid, which was fabricated by CAID Industries, in Tucson.
