James Carpenter

James Carpenter has spent his career in the arena of public art and architecture, pushing the boundaries of light and glass technologies in large environmental spaces. The primary focus of his work is the exploration of the natural phenomenon of light and structure as they influence built space. Carpenter’s original approach to glass uses the material’s inherent transparency and reflectivity to capture and direct light in ways that give shape and character to architectural space. Some of his major projects include a light threshold for the 2000 Olympics in Australia, the skylight for Columbus Center in New York, the Great Hall Tower of the San Francisco Civic Center, and projects for NationsBank, San Francisco International Airport, and Seattle Financial Center.
