Allen Institute for Brain Science

Studio SC (Seattle) is creating an environmental graphics program for the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood.

The cornerstone of the program is a 180-ft.-long media wall. Constructed like a light box, the wall is composed of multiple layers of glass and low-tech LED lighting. Adding visual depth and interest to the wall are graphic interpretations of neurons in the form of arrows, letters, and binary code. The installation is designed to be an engaging expression of the complexity of the anatomy and function of the human brain.

Perkins + Will is the architect and GLY Construction is the general contractor for the project.
