ALD recently completed a mock up for the tower at 20 Washington Place in Providence, RI.
On site mock ups are a vital part of the lighting design process. Unlike computer models and calculations, mock ups provide a real world illustration of how a particular luminaire will function in a particular environment.
The purpose of this mock up was to test a couple of different LED manufacturers to see which would be best suited for this project. We also tested the idea of using two different color temperatures of light for the same tower - warm to light the interior and a cooler temperature for the exterior.
20 Washington Place is owned by the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and we are working on the project in conjunction with them and Haynes/DeBoer Architects + Planning. Keep your eyes out for this project to be completed later this calendar year!
