Uni­ver­si­ty of Illi­nois at Chica­go, Richard J. Daley Library

The UIC Daley Library has undergone a complete transformation. The once drab, dated space was revived into a dynamic center for research, presentations, group study, tutoring, and socializing.

Our lighting for this space celebrates the raw, Brutalist architecture. Fluorescent T5 direct-indirect pendants and concealed striplights reveal the exposed concrete structure. Ceramic metal halide sources provide supplemental downlight and highlight feature walls. CFL "drum"-style pendants are clustered above "collaborative" zones.
