Now that’s a bright idea

THIS IM­PRES­SION OF a daz­zlingly il­lu­mi­nated Lon­don Bridge is part of one of six de­signs short­listed from 100 en­tries from 20 coun­tries in a com­pe­ti­tion by the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, and the Il­lu­mi­nated River Foun­da­tion char­ity for “ideas for cre­ative light installations for cen­tral Lon­don’s bridges”.

Blur­ring Bound­aries, sub­mit­ted by Ad­jaye As­so­ci­ates, would use a se­ries of light installations to “spot­light the unique his­to­ries and qual­i­ties” of the 17 bridges over the Thames, cou­pled to “ur­ban pavil­ions” and an au­di­to­rium along the banks.

Other en­tries fea­ture il­lu­mi­na­tion of the river walls as “a con­stant thread of light”, light­ing which changes with the tides, and even lamp­posts in the wa­ter.

The win­ning en­try will be cho­sen on 8 De­cem­ber, and de­vel­oped in con­sul­ta­tion with the pub­lic in time for the pro­ject to start in 2018.
