Acuity Brands Helps MIT Blend Modern LED Technology with Classic Architecture to Revive Historic Dome



Gotham LED downlights illuminate reading space in the Barker Engineering Library; embedded controls interface with downlights and daylighting from Dome’s skylight.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) installed 48 Incito™ LED downlights embedded with nLIGHT® lighting controls from Acuity Brands Inc. as part of the University’s renovation of the Great Dome in the Barker Engineering Library. MIT updated the historic dome using integrated Gotham® LED downlighting with embedded controls to provide consistent light levels for reading in the library, while complementing daylighting from the Dome’s skylight.
