Given the urban nature of this project, it was critical to understand its context, and assimilate the local dynamics of usage patterns, circulation and night-time node for activity. In working with the architects, we decided to pursue an unconventional approach to this project, since the genre of such projects is usually driven by light levels first and then everything else. We decided to make light levels our last check during quality control, and work on composing the elements of this project into a wholesome and exciting night-time space that engenders and enables the community to link with each other.

The results have been gratifying. The lighting response to this environment- combining wayfinding, patterns and rhythms with lights, and highlighting the architectural massing with strong geometric lighting moves has led to a very positive response from the community.
