Abstract

The Uptown Houston Development Authority contracted long-time partner landscape architecture firm SWA Group to design the transformation of the area. After conducting on-site mockups with three potential luminaires, SWA selected an indirect metal halide for its light quality and elegant architectural design. Aesthetically, the fixture met the criteria of being dynamic and contemporary without being too loud. In addition to matching the clean-styled, contemporary aesthetic of the district architecture, its sleek pole and reflector combination produce bright, even illumination with minimal glare. The metal halide luminaire uses a 150-W T6 metal halide lamp and a 14-ft-high faceted square reflector. The square shape of the reflector produces a square illumination pattern that lights not only the sidewalks, but also the streets and property behind the sidewalks.
