Battery Park City Community Center
By Jamie Waugh / Published by Dwell

The structure's highlight is a public 500-foot long glass "Wall of Light" with an LED light installation the firm designed along with Tillotson Design Associates, illuminating a sound composition by New York composer Michael Schumacher. It will bring to light the passive energy systems fueling the Community Center: a program including swimming pools, a gym, a theater, classrooms and recreation and dance spaces. Completion date: 2010.
