Twilight Epiphany (Rice University, Texas, United States)

James Turrell's Twilight Epiphany, built in 2012, accommodates 120 people between two levels. It is acoustically engineered to host musical performances and to act as a laboratory for music school students on select days after sunset. Constructed of grass, concrete, stone and composite steel, the structure is equipped with an LED light sequence that projects on to the ceiling just before sunrise and at sunset.
