Lighting One Up in Public Space
February 21, 2010 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Take a virtual spin through this urban environmental art installation, to be experienced, not just viewed and admired. With LEDs embedded in the cobbled surface below that bathe a steel plate suspended eight meters high by thin poles, the glow of light emitted from this public space pavilion in Regent’s Place, London, can be seen from a distance as well as experienced within its towering beams.
The pavilion, according to the architects, “examines how the public space is defined without enclosing it” while it also marks the Osnaburgh Street entrance to Regent’s Place, a mixed-use business, retail, and residential development.
