Light and material work together to create a visual rhythm and a sense of directional movement, flowing through the International Passenger’s Tunnel at McCarran International Airport. Graceful curving lines of light are concealed within the metal panels wrapping from wall to ceiling, fully integrating the lighting hardware into the architectural fabric of the connecting tunnel. Brightness envelops the passenger from all surfaces, enlivening the journey through the subterranean passageway.
Lam Partners teamed with William Rawn Associates and Stantec Architecture on the design of the Taussig Cancer Center at Cleveland Clinic. Architectural Record spoke with principals from WRA and Stantec, as well as key personnel from the Cleveland Clinic and Taussig Cancer Center, to learn how the Clinic’s “patient first” philosophy informed the minimalist design of this state-of-the-art cancer treatment facility.

We are thrilled to announce that the Bruce C. Bolling Municipal Building has been named Silver Medalist of the 2017 Rudy Bruner Awards for Urban Excellence. Lam Partners teamed with Mecanoo and Sasaki on the design, which included renovation and restoration of the historic and iconic Ferdinand’s Furniture building in Roxbury’s Dudley Square. This new municipal office building offers community space and a roof terrace that is accessible to the public. It is part of the Dudley Square Vision Project, an effort set in motion by former Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino to revitalize the Dudley Square neighborhood.

The Bruce C. Bolling Municipal Building was designed by Dutch practice Mecanoo, together with Boston firm Sasaki Associates in collaboration with Lam Partners for lighting design, and opened to public fanfare on April 26, 2015. The project is located in Dudley Square in the heart of Roxbury, and two historic buildings, the Ferdinand Furniture Building and the Curtis Block and Waterman & Sons Building. make up part of the new building’s façade. The 215,000-square-foot building will house the Boston Public School Headquarters, as well as the Roxbury Innovation Center.
Designed by Safdie Architects, in collaboration with Paul Zaferiou, Glenn Heinmniller, and Dan Weissman at Lam Partners, The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts has been featured on the website of WE-EF– manufacturer of the exterior lighting fixtures used on the project: “The awards laud the way the interiors and exteriors are lit in a “seemingly simple yet technically sophisticated way”. According to AL Magazine, ‘the lighting provides an intimate feel and sets the stage for the spectacle within. The lighting of the back façade is particularly dramatic.“

“We were balancing ambitious energy savings goals with functional space requirements and innovative design,” Latchford says. “A majority of energy-efficient lighting designs simply give people less light. We started with the notion that we would essentially put the light where it was needed and let the interstitial areas fall off. We collaborated with Re:Vision to integrate the lighting as much as possible, working light fixtures into architectural details.”
