When you slow down and align yourself with the desert, the project begins to unfold before you. All photos by Steven King Photography. LED lighting and other custom electronic components were installed within the building’s interior to illuminate it from the inside at night, giving the harsh, dull and monochromatic landscape a splash of light. Be warned though, do not attempt to approach from the direction of the sun! Source
