  1. Synchronizing the City: Its Natural and Urban Rhythms Winning Team: Current
  2. The international design competition is run by The Illuminated River Foundation and the Mayor of London. Each team has created a concept design for lighting four individual bridges (Chelsea, London, Waterloo and Westminster) and an overarching masterplan for the main road, rail and pedestrian bridges between Albert and Tower. The Illuminated River is a design commission on an unprecedented scale: a unified scheme conceived to light central London’s bridges along the River Thames. The seven month search for a world class team to illuminate the Thames’ bridges in a free, permanent light installation saw submissions from 105 teams in 20 countries around the world. The six shortlisted concepts went on show in a public exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall in November, seen by over 10,000 people. The winning team will now start to develop the design concepts in collaboration with stakeholders and partners along the river, and in consultation with the public. This work will take place in 2017. The winning team in full: Leo Villareal (Lead Artist) Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands (Lead Consultant) Future\Pace (Curator) Atelier Ten Beckett Rankine Bradley Hemmings Core Five Futurecity Greenwich+Docklands International Festival Montagu Evans Pentagram Price & Myers Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said: “We saw an incredible response to this fascinating competition, showing that London continues to inspire creatives from around the globe, and is open to all. There were some spectacular ideas, and I can’t wait to see the winning design light up the Thames. Huge congratulations to Leo Villareal and Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands on this fantastic achievement.” Hannah Rothschild, Chair of the Illuminated River Foundation, said: “Leo Villareal’s proven ability to paint with light matched with Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ direct experience of building bridges over the Thames was an irresistible and inspirational combination. “Their scheme is beautiful, ambitious and realisable but always considerate to the environment, lighting levels and energy conservation. The jury is convinced that the winning team will transform the centre of London while remaining true to the spirit and integrity of the Thames and its communities.” The internationally acclaimed American artist, Leo Villareal, came to prominence through his celebrated project, The Bay Lights, which lit San Francisco Bay Bridge for two years. Due to its extraordinary popularity, the installation has been revived this year as a permanent element of the cityscape and adopted by the public as a new icon for the city. He trained as a sculptor and has been working with light and computer code for more than a decade, creating major installations, sculptures and public projects that have captivated audiences all over the world. His work is in the permanent collections of museums including MoMA New York and the National Gallery of Art Washington. Most recently in London he participated in the Hayward Gallery’s acclaimed exhibition, Lightshow. Award-winning architects, design consultants and urban planners, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, have worked on major projects across London including the Golden Jubilee footbridges and have a 25-year relationship with communities and businesses in London’s South Bank, having created the area’s urban design strategy and worked with the Coin Street Community Builders to regenerate the area through the development of co-operative housing, and commercial ventures to support new urban realm initiatives. Leo Villareal said: “I’m delighted and humbled by the fact that the jury went with an artistically-driven vision for the Illuminated River. The whole team shares a belief in the power of large-scale public culture and art to enrich our cities. We are deeply committed to this project. In order to nuance the concept design and create presence and legibility, we intend to take time to study the river in all its manifestations. We want to listen to Londoners in developing the scheme to deliver at all levels of art and light, urban design and architecture, the environment and sustainability. Our aim is for a lighting masterplan which reduces pollution and wasted energy, is sensitive to history and ecology and subtly rebalances the ambient lighting on the river to provide a beautiful night time experience for residents and visitors.” Source: illuminatedriver.london
  3. Dynamics in Impermanence by Nicole Larkin The structure is made from birch plywood, stainless steel, and concrete and is then lit at night. Its location on a rocky outcrop allows the piece to interact with sea and sky and constantly changes depending on the time of day, weather, and climate conditions. It’s viewers are encouraged to be part of the space as the colors and direction of the piece morph. The curves capture the rhythm of the ocean or can feel like the sun’s rays glimmering over the horizon at sunrise. We are reminded of how ephemeral nature is and find her sculpture to be both a representation and an anchor to counter it. A combination that we appreciate in these fleeting times that require moments for mediation. Source: maxinesniderinc
  4. Underground Spa As part of the extensive renovation of a 19th-century mansion, a new subterranean spa provides a place for exercise and relaxation. The network of underground rooms is intended to be a strong contrast to the decorative character of the family house above and discovered via a secret staircase accessible from the ground floor. Defined by the simple sculptural treatment of stone, plaster and water, a subtle mixture of natural and artificial light animates the space and creates an immersive and sensual environment. The main 17 metre long swimming pool, lined with coarse textured black basaltina, offers a strong visual and textural contrast to the smooth surfaces of the white limestone-lined blocks. The distinctive stone finishes of each space create a labyrinth of treatment rooms— sauna, spa and gymnasium. The undulating form of the plaster ceiling hovers above the pool and is modelled by a halo of indirect light. Source: carmodygroarke

  6. In Stockholm, AF Lighting has designed a media facade that reflects the weather, and helps build the brand of a major insurance company. The head office of Swedish insurance company If sits directly above a busy motorway just north of Stockholm. It has always been an imposing building – but rather an anonymous one, with an unlit facade. ÅF Lighting was asked to do something about that. The resulting solution is characterized by a soft, welcoming light, which matches the recently updated visual guidelines of the insurance company, and its concept of being “close to the people”. For many years, the one distinguishing feature of the building was an old digital clock sitting on top of it, which also displays outside temperature, as a service to passers-by. ÅF Lighting kept this in mind when creating the lighting concept, which involves LED strips being fitted to the entire facade, with a dynamic light flowing through them like changes in the weather. The lighting scheme also reflects actual local weather conditions, enabling the public to experience the façade lit according to natural conditions such as wind, snow, rain, sun and clouds as well as the seasonal changes. The work also included to update the old clock with a new design and new media logo. Apart from conveying a message about the weather, the lighting also gives the building a lighter, more dynamic feel, and provides an aesthetic experience for car-borne commuters on an otherwise eventless motorway. ”The project has presented challenges to which we have found innovative solutions”, says lighting designer Francesco Guastella. ”As part of the creative process, we worked closely with the customer to develop mood boards, inspired by their brand message about closeness to people. Eventually we decided that nature and its changes is something that everybody can relate to. Who has not gazed into the flames of an open fire, for instance, or at the waves lapping at a shore? This is what inspired us when creating the lighting programme that now flows along the facade.” Installing the light rods proved to be the most challenging part of the project. As the façade faces a motorway, building cranes could not reach to all the necessary installation areas. Instead, climbers were hired to perform the work. ”It looked absolutely terrifying, but the results are extraordinary”, says an evidently pleased Francesco Guastella. Now commuters are met by a beautiful façade each day, reflecting the weather in that particular moment. In other words, the lighting helps communicate the If brand, and adds value to people in their everyday lives. Source: af-lighting
  7. UK - The production behind British comedian Ross Noble's latest stand-up tour 'Brain Dump' has turned to a tourable lighting control system for the first time. The team has invested in an Avolites Titan Mobile console to power the eccentrically brilliant set, made of giant inflatable light bulbs each with an LED light source at its core. Production manager Shaun Weager, who has worked with Noble since 2012, came up with the 16-ft high dream-like design in response to a creative brief Noble ingeniously constructed using his daughter's Play-Doh. Every one of the 59 inflatable bulbs' internal LEDs has its own RGB panel through which Weager powers vibrant chases and isolation effects using the Avolites Titan Mobile. "Shaun needed a small but powerful and highly portable lighting control solution," says Pete White, Sales Manager of Stage Electrics that supplied the console. "Stage Electrics has been an Avolites master dealer and stockist for a number of years and we knew the Avolites Titan Mobile was perfect for the job; its compact format combined with the live playback features made it the obvious choice." New to Avolites, this presented Weager with the opportunity to get to grips with one of the brand's most popular consoles. The wealth of online training videos, intuitive user interface of Titan version 10 and support of the Avolites team meant he could quickly master the desk's functionality. "When I first arrived in Australia I was looking for an Avolites Pearl operator to assist with the initial show programming," says Weager. "I tweeted on social media about it and Avolites replied, putting me in touch with one of their Brisbane-based suppliers. The supplier then found a programmer in Perth called Chris Taylor who helped me programme the show! That level of support was great." White of Stage Electrics agrees: "The Avolites range of products offers our customers an excellent set of features with great back up and support from the Avolites team." The compact yet powerful Titan Mobile weighs in at 4.9kg, is USB powered and easily fits in the Avolites branded laptop bag it's supplied with - making it perfect for touring with limited space and weight restrictions. Despite its size, the Titan Mobile offers 10 playbacks with assignable controls, 20 macro buttons and a full programming surface. The Titan software offers all the functionality of the full range, which allows seamless transfer between consoles for different situations. "It's like owning a bespoke desk," says Weager. "Having the Avolites Titan Mobile console on tour has definitely made everything so much easier and I can't see any future set not including this control element. I feel like I now have the headspace to really evolve my lighting designs and push the limits of the show. It feels good to know we have this element of production covered well into the future." Following a stint in Australia at the beginning of the year, Noble's UK tour kicked off in September 2016 and will continue to February 2017. Tickets are on-sale now. Source: avolites
  8. The Shorewood Wisconsin Public Art Committee wanted to illuminate this prominent bridge as a gateway to their small progressive community bordering Milwaukee. With the goal of telling a story with light, CLDE began by researching the history around the pedestrian bridge and discovered it once carried a historic train. The C&NW 400 was famous for being the first high speed luxury train, travelling from Chicago to Minneapolis in 400 minutes at speeds reaching 100MPH. The concept was developed to use lighting and control technology and creative programming to create an allusion of the passage of the train over the bridge…a suggestion that would be a “ghost” of the train. This unique combination of history, art and technology was illustrated with renderings and animations to raise funds. The allusion starts with the sounds of crossing bells and crossing “signals” blinking on top of the bridge towers. The top rail of the bridge will begin to glow with the approaching headlight, along with the mournful sounds of the approaching train. To suggest the movement of the train cars crossing the bridge, lights from the bottom arch will wash up the side of the bridge, and move from side to side in the C&NW yellow and green colors,. “Rivets” of 3200 programmable pixels along the top rail will move at the same speed to suggest the passage of the headlight, windows and taillight. The Ghost Train passes each way once a night, at similar speeds and schedule as the historic trains. Other times there are 120 minutes of artistic lighting effects randomly playing on the bridge.
