Paris’ Oldest Dome Illuminated By Light And Water

Scroll

From the archives of one of our favourite cross-disciplinary architecture practices, DGT Architects, comes another immersive installation combining light with water.

Created to light up Paris’ oldest dome for Milan Design Week 2011, the site-specific installation was managed by DGT Architects’ own ‘lighting-time control’ system, 16 slotted tube rings adorned the ceiling, releasing 60 drops of water per second: a total of 3 tonnes, which circulates the room. “Light and water are essences of everything; without any light and water, there is no evolution in life for all,” explain the architects.
