SOM Observes Daylight Hour Worldwide

SOM offices around the world turned off the lights on June 20 in observation of Daylight Hour, an initiative to promote energy conservation. Green Light New York, the event organizer, awarded SOM with the titles of Big Kahuna and Daylight Empire for greatest total area and distance between offices.

From noon to 1:00 p.m, more than 125,000 square feet of office space switched to natural light during a period of peak energy consumption. SOM locations in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and London participated in the event, which is organized annually by Green Light New York.
