Northern Lights, Fruitmarket Gallery Edinburgh

International Competition Winner

Client: Fruitmarket Gallery with Arts Lottery funding
Team: Richard Murphy Architects + Peter Fink

The Northern Lights project is designed to provide night time identity for one of Edinburgh's leading gallery within the vicinity of Waverley train station. The development of the lighting concept involved protracted negotiations with the city to ensure that the use of colour and programmatic light does not affect the Unesco protected night time skyline of the city.

The project involves a computer driven lighting to the pavement, roof fin and other parts of the building. The installation was the first use of Colour Kinetic LED lights in the UK capable of producing wide range of colours with a fast or very slow responsiveness.
