SEGERSTROM CENTER FOR THE ARTS
Costa Mesa, CA
This new performing arts center is truly a design of the 21st century, owing to a lighting scheme that uses the most advance metal halide and LED sources and fixtures to create an arts venue that uses even less energy than allowed by California’s challenging Title 24 energy codes.
Given the low prescribed wattage allowances, monumental spaces, very tight architectural constraints, and complex designs of non-repetitive compound curves a number of solutions would have been impossible without tapping these new technologies and incorporating them into innovative details and custom designed LED fixtures.
