This project is inspired by the idea that architecture can be a living, breathing organism that can come alive by the activity of the building’s end users. The energy created in the building is projected outward into the environment and conversely, the surrounding environment’s energy brought inward.
This project has 3 modes: Sunset, Night and Event/Active.
Sunset: The lighting is programmed to respond to the environmental/color conditions at sunset, which is different every day. The intention is for Inside/Out to have a direct dialogue with the landscape and to initiate a conversation between the natural and the artificial.
Night: When in this mode, the light patterns are designed to change infinitely in varying cycles. The goal is to never have a repeated pattern during the life of the project.
Event/Active: During the Lobo basketball games and special events, the noise level in the Arena activate the lights on the exterior of the circulation tower. The crowd noise is captured and directly programmed in real time via the dynamic movement of the LED lights that are connected to microphone sensors located above the bleachers.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
