Your Last Chance to See this Glowing, Prismatic Installation in Washington, D.C.
这座万花筒般的雕塑由总部坐落纽约的Hou de Sousa修建规划事务所规划，在第五届Georgetown Glow灯火节中展出。
Designed by New York–based architecture and design firm Hou de Sousa, this kaleidoscopic sculpture is part of the fifth edition of the Georgetown Glow lighting festival.
该项目在第五届Georgetown Glow灯火节中展出，修建和照明规划爱好者可以来到华盛顿特区的乔治城滨水公园赏识这座发光的万花筒设备。“Prismatic”由纽约修建和规划工作室Hou De Sousa规划，将对大众敞开直到1月6号。
As part of the the fifth annual Georgetown Glow lighting festival, architecture and lighting design enthusiasts can find a site-specific, glowing kaleidoscopic installation in Washington, D.C.'s Georgetown Waterfront Park. Designed by New York–based architecture and design studio Hou De Sousa, "Prismatic" will be open to the public until Jan. 6.
设备由钢筋结构与彩虹色绳子制成，并采纳一批野外紫外线LED灯来照明，整个设备充满着生机，由Jordan Woodson在一个月内制作和拼装。Jordan Woodson是Arup事务所的高级工程师。“在规划时咱们有好几个方针。”该公司的联合创始人Josh de Sousa告知ARCHITECT的记者，“咱们期望用线性元从来界说大空间，然后发生通透性，而且创造出波涛般的混色作用。咱们还期望这是一座轻质但却经用的结构。”
Made from steel rebar frames and iridescent cords, and illuminated with an array of outdoor ultraviolet LEDs, the vibrant thread art installation was fabricated and assembled in collaboration with Jordan Woodson, a senior structural engineer at Arup, in one month. "We had several goals in mind when designing [Prismatic]," the firm's co-founder Josh de Sousa tells ARCHITECT. "We wanted to define large volumes of space with linear elements, thereby providing transparency and creating moire and color mixing effects. We also wanted to build a light weight, yet durable structure."
“Prismatic”选用700平方英尺（约65平方米）矩形立方体的形状，可是被打破成九个不规则的雕塑体块。游客可以在每个别块之间旅游，一起赏识邻近Potomac河和Senator Charles H. Percy广场的喷泉模糊景致。据项目描绘，当游客搬运他们的视野或在空间中走动时，布景和远景的图画不断地会聚和分层，乃至可以在静态的空间中寻找到动态的作用。
"Prismatic" takes the shape of a 700-square-foot rectangular cube, but it is broken into nine irregular sculptural volumes. Visitors can navigate the space in between each volume while taking in semi-obscured views of the nearby Potomac River and the Senator Charles H. Percy Plaza's water fountain. "As visitors turn their gaze or walk about the space, patterns in the background and foreground continuously converge and delaminate, resulting in the perception that static surfaces are somehow in motion," according to the project's description
Hou de Sousa之前的一些项目包含“Raise / Raze”，这是一座为华盛顿特区DuPont地下有轨电车地道规划的暂时设备，以及为纽约苏格拉底雕塑公园规划的木质构筑物“Sticks”。
在本年的Georgetown Glow 灯火节中，放置有来自16位艺术家的10座灯火艺术设备，这些设备将在华盛顿的不同地址展出直到1月6号。

Some of Hou de Sousa's previous projects include "Raise/Raze," a temporary installation designed for Washington, D.C.'s DuPont Underground streetcar tunnel, and "Sticks," a lumber structure designed for Socrates Sculpture Park in New York.
"Prismatic" is one of the 10 light art installations designed by 16 artists for this year's edition of the Georgetown Glowlighting festival. The installations are on view until Jan. 6, in various locations in Washington, D.C.
