"Anyone who enters the elevator tower is greeted by the shifting sound-scape. The elevators' call-buttons trigger a melodic trill, followed by related sounds as an elevator car arrives. The sounds continue inside the elevator, with slight pitch variations at each level. Rarely do the same environmental sounds repeat within a single time frame.
Janney collaborated on elements of the building's design with the project architects/engineers, Jacobs Facilities Inc. and Brent Byers, AIA, principal in charge.
Janney, trained as an architect and a jazz musician, has achieved international renown as an artist, composer and architect. He has created numerous permanent interactive sound-and-light installations. The stated objective is to make architecture more spontaneous and engaging."
