“Throughout the walls”

The lighting Plan of the Saint-Jacques neighbourhood in Brussels aims to create a lighting path in the neighbourhood.

A three-pronged approach :

  • A new public lighting
  • Standardized shop windows
  • Scenographic lighting

This gives a specificity to the neighbourhood, a real link between its history and what it has become today. 

The scenographic lighting is designed as a real artistic intervention, with images projected along the way, like a treasure hunt, inviting visitors to look up at these remarkable buildings, in collaboration with the Italian artists’ collective «ZimmerFrei».

This project was awarded the 2013 ACE Special Jury Prize.
