Sketch Series #1:April 25th 2009

Last sketch series, today was a partly cloudy day, not allowing much light in the space. This photo was taken around 1 pm where the sun is beginning to peak in on this side. The glare is the worst at the actual window, it has made a strong pattern on the floor. Overall from this exercise, i was able to notice the light patterns and see how it changes throughout the day.

Sketch Series #1:April 11th 2009

This photo was taken around 2 pm. The light pattern is beginning to stretch at an angle. I find it interesting to notice that there are two different light shadows, one less noticeable. Notice the glares on the actual window, very bright! Over the course of the day, the angle will increase coming closer to us as the sun rotates.

Proximity Hotel

What a great field trip to the Proximity Hotel. This was the first time i had visited and was amazed by how elegant and beautiful the interiors of this space is. We toured the place, paying attention to the lighting fixture and other features about how "green" this hotel is. These photos show different lighting fixtures used throughout the hotel. From using natural daylighting in the rooms, electric candles as wall art, illuminated signs and overhead lighting, this hotel met all LEED credits creating the "greenest" hotel in the world, right here in Greensboro, NC.
