partikel plan


how to cross this monumental bridge at night?


client: ig inszenierung kapellbrücke/wasserturm luzern


built in 1333, the kapellbrücke in lucerne is one of switzerlands most prominent landmarks


yet the bridge is hardly visible at night


partikel plan is the winning entry following an international competition to make the bridge a permanent and special part of the nighttime cityscape


the plan envisages the bridge to become a stage - whereby the dynamics of the movements of passers-by would be reflected by the illumination of the bridge.


crossing the bridge will become a poetic performance


for the plan a system was invented to illuminate the thousands of wooden parts individually

the lighting system has been prototyped


and the experience has been successfully tested


it is now pending full realisation
