Peak Tower by AWA Lighting Designers
Peak Tower stands at the top of Victoria Peak in Hong Kong/China. In 2006 AWA Lighting Designers designed lighting that aims to attract visitors after the 1997 renovation of the tower.
Here is more information by AWA Lighting Designers:
AWA developed a lighting design that traces the path of the arriving visitor through the expanse of the building.
The visitor is greeted by multicolored washes of light generated by LED “color-blasters” at the tram arrival station.
Upon arrival in the main atrium, guests look up to view a massive field of 2×2’ convex panels, each illuminated by an individual LED lighting strip.
Computerized controls are programed to display sweeps of color, pixilated fields of color blocks, even messages, in a dynamic, eye-catching spectacle.
Architectural Record quoted Abhay Wadhwa comparing the effect to that of, “ascending through an effervescent sea of champagne.” (Architectural Record, February 2007, p.161)
