The Beacon At PNC Tower

ESI Design

The Beacon At PNC Tower

The Tower at PNC Plaza in Pittsburgh is a LEED Platinum-certified office building with features that mimic a living organism, but the building’s environmental impact is difficult for visitors to conceptualize. That’s where the Beacon comes in. It is a 24-foot-tall cylinder of LED lights and responsive audio that is suspended in the building’s lobby. The Beacon’s lights, colors, and sounds visualize the building’s energy and water consumption, recycling, use of artificial light, composting, and more factors that make it environmentally friendly.
