Northwestern University, Mary & Leigh Block Museum of Art
Evanston, Illinois, USA
The lighting design for the Block Museum incorporates careful integration of natural lighting as well as a flexible system for electric lighting. Natural light is controlled by low-transmission glass on the front wall, as well as light control shades. Lighting for the Gallery comprises a flexible arrangement of lighting tracks and carefully selected inventory of fixtures and accessories to provide a wide variety of intensities and beam spreads for lighting two-dimensional and three-dimensional artworks. Lighting for the Print, Drawing, and Photography Study Center includes full-range intensity control and is carefully filtered to eliminate ultraviolet wavelengths. In the Auditorium, the lighting is designed to provide appropriate environments for lectures, symposia, concerts and film exhibition.
