Mall of America


Bloomington, Minnesota

The redesigned of Mall of America is now characterized by spatial clarity and a strong sense of place that unifies the various retail brand identities. New lighting and finishes make for a dramatic intervention on a limited budget.

Along the arcade, ambient light is from coves up-lighting uniquely painted ceilings and the back-lit undersides of pedestrian bridges. Central to the Boulevard is a 72 foot diameter Rotunda that is an active event venue. The upper dome ceiling was transformed with a sculpture of concentric fabric circles that are washed and defined by halos of light.
