Hall des Lumières is a multi-sensory experience, powered by video canvases that reflect onto the walls and doors. Choreographed to sound and light and set amongst the backdrop which completely transforms the historic venue. As a monumental permanent exhibition, the space features 130 video projectors, 54 speakers and 22 subwoofers that create a spatialized sound system, and cutting-edge mapping technology designed to stimulate your senses by reimagining the revolutionary art of celebrated artists.
Developed between 1902 and 1912 in traditional Beaux-Arts style, the Emigrant Industrial National Savings Bank is designated as a New York City Landmark. The venue is 30,000 square feet and spans two levels. The main level features 40-foot-high ceilings and custom 100+ year old laylights. The lower level has a raw aesthetic and provides access to a historic bank vault. Architectural details such as the marble bank tellers’ registers and interior will continue to remain in efforts to protect the integrity of the space.
