Canal Street Lights and Signage

Lockport, NY

Designer: Michael Chadwick RA, Iskalo Architecture

CLI Scope: Fabrication

Multiple layers of aluminum of varying thickness were laser cut and stacked in a manner to hide all fasteners. Due to the building’s adjacency to the Erie Canal, the symbolism of the design elements on each layer reflect the history of the area.

The signage on the opposite side of the building employs the same fabrication technique at a larger scale. Layering planes with back-fastened, countersunk fasteners allowed for different powder coat colors to be used for each layer.
