San Francisco Ferry Building

San Francisco, California
United States

The façade lighting consists of uplighting to accentuate the pairs of Corinthian columns that form the five bays of the central entry pavilion, the pedestals for these columns and the arched windows that run the length of the building. This uplighting highlights the detail of the column capitals, reinforces the rhythm of the arched openings and provides nearly continuous illumination of the building’s entablature. The tower is illuminated by roof mounted floodlights and uplights behind the columns at the top of the tower, creating silhouettes and highlighting the multiple cornice lines.
