Façade Lighting: A Fork In The Road?

Today, façade lighting design strategies seem to follow two diverging paths: One emulates the work of nature—the moon and the sun—while the other embraces the possibilities of latter-day technology. For any given project, a lighting designer tends to operate with either a “naturalist” or a “technologist” mindset, though the approaches can overlap considerably.

But Bank of America's (BoA) Charlotte, North Carolina, trading floor-winner of 2005 Lumen and IIDA Award of Excellence merits-defies such convention.

Re-imagining what a computer-age trading floor can be, the luminous 180,000-square-foot facility not only serves as BoA's vehicle for recruiting industry-leading traders from competitors in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, it also provides the open, comfortable, and inspiring environment these traders need to excel in serving clients.
