Georgia Tech University Custom Chandelier

Georgia Tech University is renovating two library spaces in the Price Gilbert and Crosland Tower buildings that are located on the main campus in Atlanta, Georgia.  Derek Porter Studio, in collaboration with Lumen Architecture, has designed the new lighting system which includes energy efficient LED sources and daylight harvesting controls.  Advanced technology is synonymous with this highly aclaimed research university.  Commensurate with this institutional identity, DPS designed a custom solid state chandelier for the ground level reading room.  This featured center piece is comprised of 320 individual pendants, each of which has eight two-sided dynamic white pixels distributed across its 10' length and a single separately controlled downlight located at the bottom.  The 3000 individual channels are DMX controlled and can play preprogrammed scenes or translate live-stream video feed into dynamic light shows.  Architecture by BNIM Architects, Diva renderings by Kama Wybieralska of Parsons.
