The Erie Canal Historic District revitalizes the decaying western terminus of the canal that shaped the country’s economy in the early 19thC. The complex site is comprised of a new Naval Museum, dock areas, bridge, interpretive elements and excavated ruins.
The fixtures are carefully integrated into the landscape and architectural features to not compete with historical elements. Special attention was given to revealing texture and form through the careful balance of a variety of white light sources. The result features key elements of the site and transforms them into a multi-layered lighting composition not readily apparent by day.
