Software Identity with a Californian Heritage

IBM Silicon Valley Lab Executive Briefing Center
San Jose, California, USA

The environmental graphics for this executive briefing center reflect the characteristics of software while displaying a uniquely Californian appreciation for the natural setting.

All briefing rooms are named for both a California ecology steward and a code development function: John Muir (Resource), Ansel Adams (Development) and John Steinbeck (Research).

The graphic art mixes the lives of these individuals in layered, windowed, iconic visuals and C++ coded narrative. The room’s graphics are translucent and, in some cases, backlit.
