The city of Liège is the economic and cultural capital of Wallonia, a region of Belgium. As part of the city’s beautification project, the Public Service of Wallonia commissioned a new dynamic lighting design for the Pont de l’Atlas, a 250-metre bridge spanning across the Meuse River.
For this, Color Kinetics eW Blast Powercore 2700 K LED luminaires were installed in decorative niches in the Pont de l’Atlas’ arches. They also lined the bottom of each arch with 1.2 m Color Kinetics eW Accent MX Powercore 2700 K LED luminaires, subtly highlighting the curved shape of the structure with warm white light.
The main lighting focus of the Pont de l’Atlas is the guardrail, which Broers lined with 1.2 m ColorGraze Powercore LED luminaires. Attached to the underside of the handrail, the luminaires downlight the stone rails along the span of the bridge in saturated intelligent color.
Each evening, the bridge comes alive with vivid light shows controlled by a Pharos LPC-20 controller that can also be remotely accessed via a GPRS modem.
