Warm By Night, 2002-

Warm By Night is a public art commission for CityPlace towers south of Front St. on both sides of Spadina Ave. in Toronto. The Concord Adex Development corporation requested an artistic roof-top lighting treatment that would unify and define the towers within the skyline. I proposed to illuminate the mechanical levels of each tower with warm-coloured light as a way of emphasizing warmth, welcome and domesticity. The towers were thereby marked as being people’s homes and lent a subtle sense of habitation and animation.

The project began in 2002 and continues.  Up to 16 towers will be included in the development and lighting scheme by completion.
