Yesterday I got the opportunity to serve as lighting designer on the One Bryant Park / Bank of America Tower opening ceremony and LEED Platinum award ceremony.
So my homies Al Gore and Mayor Bloomberg stopped by to make sure everything was square, plus some other wealthy types, like building co-owner Jody Durst and BoA CMO Anne Finucane. Basically it was like the beginning of a Batman movie.
I had to take extra care to make sure the focus worked for a giant, because everybody warned me that Gore is a giant, and they were right — he is a giant.
Oh and to the designer I was talking with who didn't know his rocks — it is Jerusalem marble, and it does indeed get pink at sundown.
