To the north of Bangalore, India, is Manyata Embassy Business Park, one of the largest operational technology and business parks in the country. With commercial, residential, hospitality and retail components, on-site facilities include a large sports complex and intra-city transportation. International lighting consultant group DPA Lighting Design developed and implemented a lighting plan for the entire site including the soft and hard landscaping, pedestrian and vehicular circulation, and building facades.
At the centre of the entrance plaza, greeting visitors to the site, sits the ‘Binary Sculpture’ artwork.
DPA worked closely with Indian multimedia artist Romicon Revola, to implement her vision of creating a sculpture whose form was expressed by concealed integrated lighting. The sculpture itself is a three-metre cube constructed from stainless steel, with each of the four visible faces featuring an array of 0 – 1 binary cut-outs, making reference to the IT nature of work of many of the park’s companies.
The programmable LED modules allow color, brightness and fade rate to be controlled for an almost endless number of visually dynamic effects to be created, resulting in a vibrant, eye catching piece of artwork.
Embassy Manyata has been awarded the Best IT Park Project by NDTV Property Awards and the Best IT Special Economic-Zone by Software Technology Parks of India (STPI).
