We are proud to announce that one of the museum projects we're currently working on will be opening soon! The National Comedy Center in Jamestown, NY will be opening a new building in August. The new exhibits, designed by Jack Rouse Associates, are interactive and react to RFID bands each museum visitor is wearing. Guests will be able to experience a personalized journey through the history of comedy. To learn more, check out this article by The Hollywood Reporter!
Last week, we had the opportunity to visit the lighting design students at Rhode Island College. We discussed the similarities between lighting design for theatre and lighting design for architecture. The students were excited to learn that a background in theatrical training can be so useful even outside the theatre! Not just in terms of technological “know how” but also in terms of the collaborative team process that’s necessary for the success of large projects in any occupation.
This shot was taken on site at one of our recent projects... any guesses on where we were??
The correct answer is the cupola level of the Rhode Island State House! Working with the wonderful team from Creative Environment,ALD recently completed install and focus on a new lighting system for the State House exterior. Up next: programming the system so that the colors can artfully reflect holidays and current events. Next time you're driving through Providence, look up and see what colors are being used!
