Known largely for creative structural architecture, Wannemacher Jensen Architect (WJA) also does substantial work involving extended facets of design – one in particular is lighting.
This year, they were one of seven firms chosen to create a light installation for Lights On Tampa, a biennial event bringing free access to innovative and interactive light-centered public art experiences.
As quoted in the Tampa Tribune, principal Jason Jensen explains WJA’s installation, “River Glow,” was meant to “expose the ecosystem, part of the system that you don’t notice on a regular basis.”
Don’t worry if you missed the two-day festival of lights. Once construction is complete, the 50-by-120-foot installation made of approximately 95 lights will be back for good as a permanent installation.
