MetLife Tower – Citation
New York, NY   The first priority in redesigning this 1909 historic landmark’s exterior lighting was to honor its classic nature by bathing its facades in flattering light. Restoration included refurbishing of the lantern atop the building, lighting the new gold leafed dome, floodlighting eighteen stories and converting the luminous clock to color-changing fiberoptic.   • Project Name: MetLife Tower • Owner: MetLife • Architect: Building Conservation Associates, Inc. • Lighting Design Firm: Horton Lees Brogden Lighting Design
 Dreaming in Color – Marion Oliver McCaw Hall Citation Seattle , WA Nine metal-mesh scrims, averaging 30-by-40 feet, frame a 300-foot promenade adjacent to the newly renovated opera house.
