Tom Gallagher is a Lead Designer for both architectural and lighting projects, and believes that light is the most important material in the built environment. As the founding and current leader of the DLR Group New York studio, Tom has also led significant cultural sector work in New York, nationally and globally.

Join us for an evening tour of the lighting at Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center. 

Two decades after it was destroyed, Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church is reopening in the coming weeks as a national shrine at the World Trade Center. Shining with the glow of “ten thousand candles,” the monument will illuminate marble gifted by the Greek government to pay homage to the lives lost during 9/11, standing in the same location as the original site of worship.

How can lighting design support remembrance and healing? We will begin with a tour of the lighting led by Tom Gallagher, Principal at DLR Group. We then invite you to join us at a casual reception following the tour to continue the conversation.
