Merging sleek architecture and vibrant art is the newly completed 81 Bay Street building. Consisting of not one, but twelve massive custom illuminated art walls (six main lobbies at 37’ in height, and 6 sky lobbies at half size), GPI’s expertise in fine engineering and precise coordination of surface and lighting was necessary to bring Artist Steve Driscoll’s expressive and colorful works to life in backlit glass art panels. The mock-up at GPI proved essential in determining several key things, including the optimal glass “recipe “to compliment the artwork, and the proper lighting color temperature to accurately enhance – without shifting – the hue of the original works. With intense color variations and amorphous forms spanning multiple stories, these art walls make for an intense experience in color, light, and scale.
