Oculus Reaches New Heights with BCG DTLA
by Lois I. Hutchinson
"What we need to get is a drone fly-through shot to understand the space," said Scott Hatton, principal of Oculus Light Studio, describing the complexity and dizzying heights of the Boston Consulting Group offices in Downtown Los Angeles. "The blue oculus skylight in the lobby, that's the only space that's open the full 54 ft." The lighting design for the BCG offices earned Hatton, Senior Designer Carol Prendergast and Principal Archit Jain one of the top prizes at the 2017 Lumen West Awards, the Award of Excellence. The team creatively accommodated the project's stunning wraparound views, high illumination requirements and a fast-track, moderate budget.

Look to Open Standards and Interoperability for Smart City Infrastructure
Smart city citizens and visitors are reaping benefits from innovation that enables device connectivity. Beyond reduced energy costs, carbon footprint reductions and increased public safety, two things have become abundantly clear from deployments of scaled smart cities programs: the benefits of industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and smart city services such as intelligent streetlights can have a ripple effect on a larger community's smart initiatives, and smart city infrastructure is here to stay. As these trends evolve, it's critical that a city implement solutions with flexibility, scalability and interoperability, as these critical factors will allow them to deploy multiple applications on a single network, and help prep for future expansions.
