This may sound rather biblical. Back in 1998, it was as if the Gateway Foundation of St. Louis said, “Let there be light.”

And there was light indeed. Eventually, lots of it. After this luminous program began to roll radiantly through town, sunset meant important architectural buildings in our regional world came alive with light.
