Entry Description

Is the most recognisable sightseeing in Moscow and a reminder of Imperial Russia’s Victory over Napoleon. The object of cultural heritage of Russia.

The concept of the lighting is based on the architectural specifics of the exhibition, which has many angular features. To break down the complex geometry of the landscape simple rounds shapes were added. Their design and simplicity do not take all the attention, and dark grey colour is combined with pillars and other sculptures of the Triumphal Arch during daytime.

Enlightened trees visually complete the architectural landscape and create that necessary dynamics drawing the focus towards the main part, the Triumphal Arch. We used the equipment with regulated colour temperature of white. This will allow to pick the most optimal colour solutions and achieve visual comfort knowing specifics of the monument finishing materials and the environment.
Hence we have achieved our goals to emphasise the role of triumphal gates as a centre of the exhibition, create identity of the Island within general city landscape, integrate the project into existing light environment of the prospect and provide security for pedestrians’ visual orientation.
