The Illuminated River will be a long-term art commission on an unprecedented scale: a scheme to light Central London’s bridges along the River Thames.
The project will transform the capital with a unified kinetic light installation across Central London’s bridges that will connect, celebrate and capture the spirit of the Thames and its diverse communities.
Incorporating 15 bridges, from Albert Bridge to Tower Bridge, once complete it will be the longest public art commission in the world at 2.5 miles in length, along 4.5 nautical miles of the River Thames. Based on a single lighting concept, the artwork on each bridge will capture its unique history and identity, and respond to its distinct area of the Thames.
This is set to be a fantastic addition to London and the River Thames and is a project the Livett’s Group fully supports.
Illuminated River is now embarking on their pre-planning public consultation which is your chance to support the project via their public drop-in exhibitions. Here you will have the opportunity to see full design concepts, hear more about the project as a whole and share your opinions about it.
You can view a list of the drop-in exhibitions on the Illuminated River website.
We hope you enjoy the exhibitions and are as excited as we are to see the Illuminated River come to life on the Thames!
