Oct. 28, 2011
Date Announced: 28 Oct 2011 Award recognizes Jaqua Center project in A І L - Light & Architecture Design Awards.Tivoli, the original innovator of linear LED solutions is pleased to announce that the University of Oregon’s (UO) John E. Jaqua Academic Center was recently awarded a prestigious Architectural Lighting Magazine's Light & Architecture Design award. The annual awards program honors outstanding and innovative projects in the field of architectural lighting design. The UO Jaqua Center was awarded a Commendable Achievement in the Whole Building Design Category recognizing and rewarding excellent lighting design.Architectural firm, ZGF Partnership and Lighting Designer Mark Godfrey of Lighting Studio at Interface Engineering Lighting worked together to create a tranquil environment for studying that connected students to the surrounding natural landscape elements and daylight, but also a vibrant and welcoming space as well. The Center was designed specifically to address the academic needs of student athletes. The architectural and lighting design team created a unique learning environment in which the athletes can succeed on and off the field. The building, made of glass, rests on a “table of water” and a birch forest. LED lighting was used for various reasons on the exterior hardscape and landscape. Steplights and long linear runs of TivoFlex® LED product from Tivoli Lighting accent the entry steps, as well as the edge of the reflecting pool. It not only fit with the sustainable design goals of the project, but it also provided the intensity needed on the project. Godfrey comments, “We really needed lighting systems with more focused intensity than traditional luminaire choices. Fluorescent and ceramic metal halide do not provide the combination of smooth linear focused intensity that lighting LED provides.”The flexible LED encased oval-shaped, constant color lens of the TivoFlex provided a perfect water-resistant solution to illuminate the interior and exterior steps of the Center. TivoFlex was incorporated into the design of the entry steps and reflecting pool to create a soft glow of illumination upon entry, as well as to provide safe passage and an elegant pathway around the building perimeter. The superior small profile TivoFlex provided seamless illumination for the exterior and interior steps in a warm white hue that accents the surrounding elements. “The superior color rendition and visual clarity of the low heat LEDs in Tivoflex and their seamless illumination and ability to bend and form to the application, provided us with the ideal solution for this specific application” commented Godfrey. “The particular use of TivoFlex in this application really made the entry steps feel and look as if they are floating in this serene environment further adding to the visual table of water” affect of the entire building.”Award: A I L Lighting & Architecture Award 2011Category: Whole BuildingProject: John E.
