half mile light

The “half mile” light is a nod to the “half mile building” in Ann Arbor, Michigan designed by Gunnar Birkerts. It is an extendable design potentially up to a half mile long. Pictured is a prototype constructed with aspen and acrylic, lighted with LEDs. As the technology becomes available the acrylic parts will be replaced with OLED panels.
