PROJECT SCOPE

Consisting of a comprehensive flood-lighting program for all four of the Holland Tunnel Vent Buildings situated in New York Harbor, DGA designed a visually distinctive approach defining the Vent Buildings as striking visual components of New York City's historic Hudson River waterfront. As part of our efforts on this project, a full-size mockup that combined metal halide and high pressure sodium sources was created to demonstrate our floodlighting concepts. An adjunct to this effort was the lighting of the "Joie de Vivre" sculpture by Marc di Suvero located at St. John's Rotary at the New York exit of the Holland Tunnel (the sculpture has since been moved to Zuccotti Park).
