Erwin Redl
Wave
LED installation
2009


Project Area:  Hollywood
Project:  W Hollywood Hotel & Residences
Project Location:  6250 Hollywood Boulevard
Project Type:  Developer Initiated

Description:

At W Hollywood Hotel & Residences, Erwin Redl installed a vast canopy of white LED lights that soars overhead, beginning at the Argyle entrance and continuing through the covered drive into the open motor court.  This installation features nearly 40,000 white lights aligned on a 6 inch grid.  The result is a sparkling sense of arrival for guests and visitors, and from the pedestrian viewpoint, this canopy will help minimize the proximity and height of surrounding buildings.
