The Illuminated River project will transform the capital with a unified kinetic light installation across Central London’s bridges that will connect, celebrate and capture the spirit of the Thames and its diverse communities.
Incorporating 15 bridges, from Albert Bridge to Tower Bridge, once complete it will be the longest public art commission in the world at 2.5 miles in length, along 4.5 nautical miles of the River Thames.
Based on a single lighting concept, the artwork on each bridge will capture it’s unique history and identity, and respond to its distinct area of the Thames.
Following an international competition launched in June 2016, and run under OJEU rules with more than 105 submissions, the winning scheme, led by American light artist Leo Villareal (the artist responsible for lighting San Francisco’s Bay Bridge) and the London architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, impressed the jury with their exciting kinetic artwork as well as their respect for the natural environment, local inhabitants and the architectural character and history of the bridges.
