Motordom kinetic neon installation wraps the four-story outdoor entry plaza of the building. The architectural elements of the building like benches and plinths are deployed with fluorescent illumination. The concept of one indirect and direct luminaire per workstation is said to be key to the sustainability goals of the project.
