Constell.ation: Lighting installation in Lisbon by LIKEarchitects

Category: Design Published on 18 Mar, 2014 Tags: , , , ,

Portuguese studio LIKEarchitects designed an ephemeral lighting installation for the gardens of the Presidential Portuguese Republic Residence. ‘Conste.llation‘ is materialized by a network of contiguous arches in red corrugated tube, illuminated by a LED lighting system, that delicately dances on the gardens, connecting spaces and crafting unexpected routes.


The arch – a primordial element in architecture – has the inherent power to create space (under, inside, etc.), and, at the same time, to build a physical relation between two places (between, inside, etc.) being related also to the idea of connection and unification. The installation was in place from December through to January — the red colour of the arches created an association with Christmas. It also helped the structures stand out against the greenery.
