Scroll down to unravel two beautiful and tall buildings lit by LED lighting which have transformed the nighttime skyline.
- San Francisco’s Salesforce Tower Lit by LED
Famous and well known San Francisco-based artist, Jim Campbell was commissioned to illuminate the crown of San Francisco’s 1,070-foot-tall Salesforce (a.k.a. Transbay) Tower. Campbell’s installation consisted of four integrated lighting schemes across the top nine “floors” of the tower, the upper two-thirds consisted of perforated aluminum panels, the bottom third of which is a glass curtain wall matching the exterior of the tower shaft below. The aluminum panels were lit with 11,000 LEDs capable of displaying low-resolution moving color imagery mostly a combination of pre-recorded images which were taken from cameras surrounding the City.
- Hancock Skyscraper Gets Dynamic LED Lighting
John Hancock Center is a 1,128-foot supertall skyscraper. It is one of the most famous buildings at North Michigan Avenue, Illinois, United States. As of now, it has been said the building is one of the oldest skyscrapers in the world with 100 floors or more and stands out beautifully against the backdrop of Lake Michigan. Recently, the building has undergone a lighting transition. Acclaim Lighting has announced an architectural lighting retrofit atop the John Hancock Center. The new and elegant LED lighting replaced an old and dated Crown of Lights that surround the building on the 99th floor and that can be seen from 360° for miles. The new solid-state lighting (SSL) system is controlled via DMX by an engineer sitting in a comfortable space of his office on the 16th floor of the skyscraper.
