Lighting Design: Epiphany of Dusk Lighting Design

“Epiphany of the twilight” (Twilight Epiphany), which was opened on the last day of June 14 with a spectacle of lights at dusk. The pyramidal structure complements the presence of abstract natural light at sunrise and sunset, creating a fascinating light show that unites the beauty of the natural world with the campus and the environment.
More information to follow.

This experience see enhanced by a performance of LED light that protrude in a thin and white space 22×22 meters (approximately), and offering views of the sky across a gap of 4×4 meters (approx). This “space to heaven” is acoustically designed for musical performances and serves as a laboratory for students of the school of music, since it is next to the music school of Sefer on the campus of Rice University in Houston, Texas.

This space to the sky, which combines natural light and artificial light, has a capacity for 120 persons: 44 seats for low vision, which is adapted for invalids and 76 in top viewing area.

The interesting thing about this project is that this artist wishes to resolve in a way surprising relationship between the illusion of architecture and ideal lighting.

From a string of LED lights installed on the upper level, created a spectacle Turrel artificial and natural, in tune with the sunrise or dawn and at sunset or sunset, using a floating metal Pavilion with sensors programmed to change the intensity and nuance of the lighting as they pass the hours, in an indirect way.

A space to sit, watch and feel is the goal of the show, which lasts about 40 minutes, and the program of light can operate in a variety of weather conditions. David Leebron, President of Rice University, comments: “the school has to play your role in inspiring our students”.
