A pavilion, seemingly made of light, glows by day and by night. Concealed and subtle, the lighting transforms steel and glass into a magical new public “living room” for Boston. Transparency, reflection, and the color of light change throughout the day. Satisfying the functions of a lobby, lounge, and a venue for special events, the lighting is an integral part of the sculptural form. The transition from day to night is seamless, with tunable white, tailored optics, daylight responsive controls, and color- changing light.
