This month the Lighting Controls Association (LCA) Magazine is honoring our 2013 Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Lighting Control Innovation Award for LLB Architects office lobby!
These awards were created to recognize professionalism, ingenuity, and creativity in lighting design. For the lobby wall at LLB Architects, we lit four translucent frosted acrylic panels, each
36”x96" that are connected to the internet through a computer. Every hour, the computer accesses weather data for
the local area from the National Weather Service and determines
values for the four characteristics the wall represents (from left to right); Wind Speed, Air
Pressure, Relative Humidity, and Temperature. For each weather
characteristic, an independent color gradient was established and
programmed into the controller. For example, the Temperature gradient
runs from blue for cooler temperatures to red for warmer temperatures.
Thank you IES for the Award! To read more about the specifics of the control system, check out The Lighting Controls Association article.
