I work in a sparking new building. From design to occupancy is a long process and despite all the consultations, planning and modeling the real test of the success of a project is, ultimately, in the user’s experience in the space.
Just like in any relationship, over time, discoveries are made that irritate and ingratiate. About two weeks ago I made a discovery that made me “fall in love” with my workplace all over again. As we head into the seasons of spring and summer I’ve noticed that the sun is doing amazing things in the atrium of the building.
As the bright sun passes through the great expanse of windows, interesting patterns appear and disappear; a shadow kaleidoscope. It is nice yet it is to be expected. The delightfully unexpected discovery is that, under the right conditions, the wall of windows and the glass fixtures inside the atrium will refract the light from the sun; and act like a prism; creating a spectrum of light similar to a rainbow. These colorful beams of light show up in the most unexpected places and I always feel fortunate to catch a glimpse of one as I go about my day.
The challenge asked for the sun, but I’m giving you a rainbow. I don’t think that is such a bad trade. My photo captures the light from the sun; separated into its spectral colors. It also shows me trying to make a rainbow connection (love the Muppets). Have a look and have a listen.
