The Meeting Room in Queen Anne Square

Newport, RI | 2013


Designed by Maya Lin, The Meeting Room creates spaces that invite a spirit of gathering and community and provide a place of quiet imagination in the midst of the city. The design centers on the creation of stone foundations and rooms that trace the pre-existing building foundations at this site. The historic Newport gas light fixtures have been custom re-fitted to meet Dark Sky standards with energy efficient LED lamps that mimic the color of gas lamps, at safe light levels.
