Our response to the RFP from Pittsburgh International Airport is a site-specific intervention which latches on to and reimagines the structural system in a creative way—activating the space through natural and artificial light. We found the most interesting architectural element to be the slits in the roof corresponding to the iconic trusses that span the Great Hall and support the arched roof. These skylights are really a fascinating formal piece, but due to their orientation they produce an enormous amount of glare (pictured below), the recent renovation included a high-gloss floor that made the problem worse. In order to create a relaxing space, our installation aims to activates the space at night,  and solve this environmental issue during the day as well.
