CBBLD’s lighting design is again represented in the 2015 Archtober “Building of the Day” calendar. Now in its fifth year, the AIA New York Section’s month-long celebration of NYC architecture has featured multiple CBBLD projects annually since the festival’s 2011 inception. Archtober 2015 highlights two more CBBLD projects:
- Bronx Community College North Hall and Library (shown at left) – CBBLD’s lighting is a key design element of this 98,600 SF, LEED Silver building – the first new structure to be added to the Stanford White-designed campus in almost a century. The lighting design honors the school’s architectural history while embracing modern learning methods in a welcoming, user-friendly environment.
- The Collaborative Research Center at The Rockefeller University (shown at right) – a biomedical research complex made up of two historic laboratory buildings linked by a new, seven-story “bridge” structure housing conference and informal gathering spaces. CBBLD’s lighting design meets the technical standards required in the labs, while highlighting the glazed bridge building’s openness and elegance.
