The design can be broken down into two main components: The Animating Lightstrips and Diffusion Chamber that surrounds it. The form and geometry of the chambers are directly influenced by the topography of Pittsburgh. The two sides and the bottom of each chamber are covered with diffusion material to achieve the desired effect. Each strip is hung down from various distinct points of the main atrium's ceiling to form a vivid 3-dimensional structure. 

The connection between the suspended light strips is established by their slowly morphing form and the soothing animation that flows through all of them. The light patterns, the colors and the rate of change of the animations are kept fairly slow and simple to prevent the structure from becoming distracting and overwhelming for the visitors.
