particle plan

 

how to cross this monumental bridge at night?

 

client: ig inszenierung kapellbrücke/wasserturm luzern

 

 

built in 1333, the kapellbrücke in lucerne is one of switzerlands most prominent landmarks, yet the bridge is hardly visible at night. partikel plan is the winning entry following an international competition to make the bridge a permanent and special part of the nighttime cityscape. the plan envisages the bridge to become a stage - whereby the dynamics of the movements of passers-by would be reflected by the illumination of the bridge. crossing the bridge will become a poetic performance

 

for the plan a system was invented to illuminate the thousands of wooden parts individually

 

 

the lighting system has been prototyped   and the experience has been successfully tested. it is now pending full realisation
