Lighting solutions for the Lois and Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art match the dynamism of the museum’s architecture. Instead of traditional floodlights, linear luminaires concealed in the exterior parapets outline the building’s stacked volumes. Office ceilings are critical to the nighttime identity of the project due to the fact that they add spatial depth and become an integral part of the façade. Visible from the outside, luminous bands are arrayed above the open-plan spaces on two stories in an accelerated pattern. This creates an exaggerated perspective effect that subtly reinforces the architecture’s sense of movement.
