A HISTORICAL URBAN SPACE
Bispetorv is a central square in the oldest parts of Aarhus. Right next to the 15th century Cathedral and the 19th century theatre. For decades the space has been a large parking space, but it was recently renovated and recreated as a public space for pedestrians and as an event space.
THE TASK
To support these functions, we were asked to create a lighting design, which would accentuate the architectural elements of the space while at the same time being able to transform the space into a spectacular scene at special occasions. The result was Light Line – a subtle line of embedded light following the wall surrounding most of the space supplemented with up lights emphasizing the groves of trees scattered around the square. At special events the lights can change colour, e.g. turning red for Christmas, or rainbow coloured for Pride.
OUR ROLE
Kollision handled lighting design and provided the player – MAP – for controlling the lighting design. We also handled the tender process and supervised installation.
