- location: Tampa, FL
- system(s): MG McGrath installed 3,000 perforated metal panels to wrap the exterior of the Tampa Museum of Art. The 1/8-inch (3mm) thick, clear anodized aluminum has 3-inch (76mm) diameter holes spaced in straight rows 1-inch (25mm) apart.By offsetting two layers of perforated aluminum panels, the architect was able to acheive a ripple effect in the sunlight.
In between the layers of aluminum, a programmable LED light system was installed. See the link below for a video of the lights in motion.
