This is an important facility on the Temple University campus, not only to accommodate current students and faculty, but also to act as a showcase to attract top talent for the future. The large, two-story lobby is illuminated entirely from the perimeter, with no hanging pendants to obstruct the view; architectural surfaces are illuminated to draw the exterior nighttime view through the glass walls. BLS designed an advanced wireless lighting control system that is used in labs, classrooms, offices, breakout, and support spaces throughout the building.
