Lighthouse

Amsterdam light festival 2014, Amsterdam (NL)



A gigantic Lighthouse is glowing on the Amstel river at night, right in the middle of the Amstelsluizen.

This temporary architecture has different meanings :

Depending the lighting scenarios, it can be either a small wooden house up in the sky, where everybody can imagine their own story of what strange inhabitant could live up there... It also become a real Lighthouse, so the structure standing above the water is like a guide to the lots of boats that navigate every night on the river.

Lighthouse's structure is made of a big standing up container which also refers to the trading exchanges and expertise of the Dutch nation.
