Light Piping Solar Panels


Light Piping, an installation of solar technology on the roof of the new Media Lab extension, will bring natural light into the old building by focusing the light from an array of small lenses that focus the light into fiber optic cable. The light is transmitted as full-spectrum sunlight throughout the day, lowering energy costs, increasing psychological well being, and lighting an indoor garden symbolic of the connection between inside and outside in a more permeable building.
