Lumiere

This project was a monumental light sculpture projecting more than 650′ into the night sky, which created a beacon for Downtown. Four high-intensity xenon lamps projected from the Landmark Square rooftop and converged to create a pyramid of light. The artist illuminated the major facades of the Landmark Building with halogen lights and the penthouse level with a gradation of fluorescents to provide the high-rise with a powerful nighttime identity.
