Wilshire Grand

Project Description
Los Angeles, CA, USA

The Wilshire Grand Center features custom manufactured interior horizontal louvers in the lobby and sky lobby.  Due to their size, these venetian blinds are feature individually driven lift and tilt mechanisms.  Solarai controls were configured to provide interlocks which prevent the blinds from tilting when not fully extended.  Predictive solar tracking with anti-glare regions automate the operation.
