About NYU STERNS SCHOOL of BUSINESS

In 2009 NYU Sterns School of Business renovated the subterranean corridor connecting the parkade to the education buildings. The Architects vision to create a light-filled space, which was previously dark and intimidating, was realized by the installation of LITEFLAM XT 60 walkable skylights.

–Matt Cornett, project architect, Perkins + Will

“The skylight has surpassed everyone’s expectations. When one enters the space, the impact and presence of the skylights are immediately apparent. The once dark corridors are now overflowing with natural light–an unmistakable light that could only come from the outside.”
