Caisse des depots et consignations

The lighting design rounds off artist James Turrell’s scheme to emphasize the volumetrics of the building with changing colored lights on the office building and facade of the interior street. For the project technical support was provided to realize his vision. Research was undertaken to avoid any reflection on extensive glass surfaces. The solution provided invisible light sources, installed as to not reflect on the interior facade.
