Takarazuka University of Art and Design's exterior lighting was designed by internationally renowned artist James Turrell. Turrell implemented a design that incorporates four ethereal lighting effects to highlight and animate the fašade using Color Kinetics LED light fixtures. Applying rich displays of red, green, blue, yellow, and white light, the cycle of LED colored light effects begins with one, uniform color. The color then gradually changes from one to another in a series of intricate patterns: rising from the building's bottom to the top, unfolding from left to right, and slowly diffusing outward from the building's center. To achieve this performance with a high degree of control, 174 ColorBlast« fixtures and nearly 1500 linear feet of iColor« Cove were installed to generate the desired blend of colors and LED lighting effects without the efficiency and installation constraints of traditional light fixtures.
