Clanton & Associates designed the exhibit lighting for this 58,000 square foot learning, research and visitor information facility at Presque Isle State Park. The Center features interactive exhibits, displays and environmental programs.
Lighting is designed to provide appropriate brightness, reduce electrical loads and provide low maintenance and operating costs. Lighting techniques are carefully coordinated with the exhibit materials and finishes. Transparency images printed on clear acrylic panels are backlit with reflected indirect light. Accent lighting for text panels is carefully aimed to avoid reflected glare. Automated controls including time clocks, daylight sensors and occupancy sensors automatically operate the building on a daily basis. Manual controls provide the park staff complete manual control for the building and exhibits. Luminaires with UV and IR filters and lighting controls minimize harmful light on sensitive materials.
