Official Opening of Light – S
On the 14th of March the 2014 Light- S project at Strijp S was officially opened by the Alderman Mary-Ann Schreurs. The opening ceremony took place on Torenallee, the new icon of public space for the city of Eindhoven, and included a review of recently realized lighting projects at Strijp S.
Light-S is an innovative program of the local authorities of Eindhoven and construction group VolkerWessels. Within Light-S, different projects investigate how lighting can be applied to create new urban experiences, applying innovative techniques in a dynamic and spatial context. What Light-S aims to illustrate, is that public lighting can, and should, do much more than only light the streets, it should create a public lighting experience.
Each of the lighting projects within Strijp S are custom designed for the specific zone theyare placed in. In every zone, requirements and standards for the lighting are developed, to support a high quality of urban experience.
Light-S complements the ongoing development of West 8’s master plan for Strijp S.
