Perkins + Will specifying the design build refresh and expansion of the Medical City Dallas hospital campus, reached out to LightArt initially seeking a large suspended rainbow ribbon ceiling installation for the main entry atrium of the Women + Children medical services building.
The project went through a variety of design directions, changes, and special considerations taken to the custom nature of the intent and large scale of the space. The result was a 16ft tall overall, lit rainbow ribbon sculpture, mounted to a concrete pedestal.
During the project process I was able to learn a lot, overcome design obstacles, how to collaborate with challenging vendors, and to take initiative in developing and designing an installation guide that set a new precedent for project manager deliverables of large scale fixture installations. Overall, the project was a success and the hospital was pleased with the artistic end result.
