ILLUMINATING




Completed at Landing Studio
       
        The Ouellette Bridge lighting project made a fabrication set for a local steel worker to make custom light housings and clamps to illuminate the longest lenticular truss bridge in the country.  This historic bridge from the 1880s is fully functional in spite of its old age, and part of the design challenge was to not alter any of the original bridge components.  Drilling or welding was ruled out: instead, through a series of clamps and small legs, light housings are propped up along the length of the bridge’s road barriers.  Warm, sensitive and gentle light is casted onto the lacy iron lattices of this architectural relic.
