Project Description: Illuminated River is a long term art installation scheme to light up 14 bridges of central London and transform nocturnal views of the city.
Artwork and design is lead by Brazilian artist Leo Villareal, who is is working with cutting edge LED technology and custom software to ‘paint with light’, producing sequenced patterns that subtly unfold across the Thames bridge structures. The first 4 bridges, running from London Bridge to Southwark Bridge, were completed in Summer 2019. The next phase of the project, lighting up all 5 bridges from Blackfriars Bridge to Lambeth Bridge is currently underway, with installation taking place across the bridges.
Estimated Completion: Early 2021.
