We are pleased to share that AWA was featured in Bright 2, a recent publication on architectural illumination and light installations. This publication by the Frame Group, Netherlands, showcases the work of forty-four design studios around the world. AWA is one out of four design studios from the United States to be featured in this book. Earlier in 2007, AWA had also been featured in Bright (1).
The editors at Frame chose to feature AWA’s Brigade Gateway Complex, for its intent to create a paradigm shift in the lighting of public spaces and mixed-use environments. This book also highlights three additional AWA Projects: Cyber Hub, Singapore Chancery, and FIFC.
