From darkness into light, explore how this former postal facility that had been shrouded since WWII now invites the traveling public into its soaring great hall. The transformation represents New York’s most ambitious infrastructure upgrade in decades. This grand civic space and NYC's new travel destination represents seven years’ effort from lighting designers Domingo Gonzalez Associates, yielding a design that is at once subtle and bold. Ilva Dodaj, the lead lighting designer on this project, will explain the challenges, techniques, and coordination required to create a vibrant nighttime experience in the train hall's public space.

This event is presented as part of OHNY @ Night, a series showcasing the work of Lumen Award-Winning Lighting Designers presented in partnership with the New York City Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IESNYC).
