Description

A line of light spanned the western facade of The Cooper Union building. In the third floor architecture studio fluorescent tubes were installed facing outwards in each window. The fluorescent tubes were switched on two hours before sunset each day. As the light of day gradually decreased the line of light was increasingly visible both from the inside and outside of the building. Within the studio light reflected in the glass of the windows and the white walls caused an ambient glow. From within the urban context a distinct line of light was seen accentuating the architecture.
