Conceived as an integral part of The New York Times Building, The TimesCenter is a performance venue consisting of a 378-seat auditorium and a reception space. The glass-fronted auditorium hosts the TimesTalks television series, book signings, and various performances against the unexpected backdrop of a garden courtyard.
Lighting supports the unique configuration of the auditorium and visually unifies the spaces of The TimesCenter, garden and the main lobby of the tower. Luminaires, positioning, and details from The New York Times Building are carried into The TimesCenter and establish a common lighting vocabulary between the spaces.
