Ranked by the AIA as one of America's 150 great works of architecture, the University of Michigan's William W. Cook Legal Research Building has recently undergone lighting upgrades and a ceiling restoration. The landmark Reading Room (pictured) was the primary beneficiary of the lighting upgrades. The project team, led by Atlanta-based Lord, Aeck & Sargent and lighting consultant Gary Steffy Lighting Design, Ann Arbor, utilized a variety of strategies to reduce energy use and optimize lighting while preserving the historic fabric of the collegiate gothic structure.
