橙县艺术博物馆是南加州现代和当代艺术的新文化地标，纽约建筑事务所Taylor & Miller的照明部门TM Light负责此博物馆的照明设计和实施工作。TM Light为博物馆的所有画廊空间制定了照明方案，并与负责建筑设计的Morphosis事务所合作完成了内部公共空间和外部照明的建设和实施。TM Light的照明概念和设计让参观者能够从沐浴着南加州日光的橙县艺术博物馆外部广场自然过渡到博物馆的内部空间。
TM Light, the lighting arm of the New York-based architectural practice Taylor & Miller, assisted in the lighting design and execution of the Orange County Museum of Art, a new cultural landmark for modern and contemporary art in Southern California. TM Light developed the lighting approaches for all the Museum’s gallery spaces and also collaborated with the building’s architect Morphosis to complete the construction and implementation of the lighting in the interior public spaces and exterior. TM Light’s lighting concept and design allows visitors to seamlessly transition from the exterior plaza of the OCMA filled with Southern California daylight to the Museum’s interior spaces.

The main floor of the Museum is dedicated to a reconfigurable open-span exhibition space, complemented by mezzanine, black-box, and jewel-box galleries that can accommodate temporary and permanent collection exhibition spanning a variety of scales and mediums. As one crosses the threshold into the main gallery space of the first floor, the visitor is welcomed by a low-slung metal panel ceiling with a custom integrated BusRun lighting track in this first transitional gallery that is used to illuminate the surrounding walls, benches, artwork and signage.

从这个净高较低的区域下方进入两层通高的开阔的主画廊空间，参观者可以通过间接照明和扇形天花板的漫射环境光欣赏展出的大型艺术作品。这类独特的天花板设计将一层从扇贝形拉伸织物反射的环境光，以及一层来自上方照明轨道头的灯头部分隐藏在视线之外。从一个由大型玻璃立面和扇形天花板照亮的18英尺高线性画廊过渡到另一个较低的 9 英尺高、私密度高的单层高画廊空间，参观者通过嵌入式的BusRun轨道照明收获完整的画廊体验。
Moving from under this lower height area into the expansive double height main gallery space, the diffuse ambient light of an indirectly illuminated and scalloped ceiling welcomes the visitor to the view of the larger art pieces on display. This unique ceiling allows for a layer of ambient light reflected from the scalloped stretched fabric as well as a layer of light from the above lighting track heads that are partially concealed from view. The gallery experience is completed by a transition from a tall, 18-foot linear gallery illuminated by a large glass façade and the scalloped ceiling to another lower 9-foot height, super intimate single height gallery space illuminated with recessed BusRun track lighting.

A spacious roof terrace, equivalent in size to 70 percent of the building’s footprint, serves as an extension of the galleries with open-air spaces that can be configured for installations, a sculpture garden, outdoor film screenings, or events. T&M Light incorporated sculptural pole lighting with adjustable heads, lighting underneath all of the benches, and illumination of hte tree canopies that flank the terrace.

By creating a gradient of lighting intensity, from complex forms ambiently illuminated at the museum’s entry to flexible forms within the galleries defined by cascading layers of light the building is both memorable and striking, while serving primarily as a supportive stage for art.
