Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens - Palm Court
Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Lighting Designer: Studio I / Lam Partners
Electrical Contractor: Hanlon Electric
Manufacturer: Philips Signify Color Kinetics
Product: Colorgraze QLX, Colorgraze EC, Iplayer3

The Palm Court at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is one of the most noticeable exhibits with its Victorian style architecture and glass peaks.  The Lighting Designer on the project was Studio I / Lam Partners and the Electrical Contractor was Hanlon Electric.  The Phipps Palm Court color changing lighting is made out of two levels of lighting, a lower and upper ring.   The lower ring of lighting is covered by utilizing 32 Philips Signify Color Kinetics Colorgraze QLX 4-foot fixtures.  The upper ring is covered by 16 Philips Signify Color Kinetics Colorgraze EC 4-foot fixtures.  All the fixtures are being controlled with a Philips Signify Color Kinetics Iplayer3.   The project demanded a high level of granularity, so each fixture was set-up to change color by each foot of the fixture.  Besides several static color looks, there are also several displays that have a rainbow of light slowly moving around the dome.

Red and blue neon tube arrays mounted on the step-pyramid peak of the 44-story edifice provided the city with a simple, color-coded forecast system: red light signified fair weather ahead, while blue light meant rain or snow. If the light was steady, the temperature was predicted to rise; if flashing, to fall. Read More
