Sansi North America, LLC (Ballston Lake, N.Y.) supplied the LED components of the environmental graphics program for the new 440,000-sq.-ft. NPR headquarters in Washington, D.C. The project, designed by Poulin + Morris Inc., includes several LED elements, including a dramatic LED-based Media Mosaic inside the lobby as well as an LED ribbon and ticker element on the exterior of the building.
The Media Mosaic is a quilt-like assemblage of LED and static panels mounted within a steel armature covering the walls of Studio One, NPR's largest production facility. SNA also supplied LEDs for the news ticker ribbon wrapping the exterior of the building, as well as LED "sticks" on the 52-ft.-high icon tower identifying the building.
"We love when we have a chance to mix in multiple LED technologies, which Richard Poulin and company designed in as part of the NPR project," says Mitch Leathers, SNA's Marketing Manager. "We were delighted to work with such a great design team on such an important project."
The project was the cover feature in eg magazine No. 07, 2013.
