两千多年来,泰晤士河一直是伦敦的重要组成部分,它塑造了社区格局,推动了经济的发展。每年它都吸引近3000万的游客来到伦敦,并继续成为伦敦人和游客获得巨大快乐的源泉。

在白天,在阳光下,泰晤士河会生动的言语,但在冬天的下午,在夜晚,它会褪色成一条黑暗带。伦敦的自然中心变得阴暗和晦涩,抑制许多公共场所周围的气氛。

然而,随着光作为媒介的公共艺术和新的照明技术被艺术家带到世界各地的观众面前,使得大幅降低能源消耗,没话了城市环境,这让伦敦现在有机会在天黑后用创造性的手段重拾这条河流的精彩。

照亮河流基金会(The Illuminated River Foundation)通过一项欧洲最雄心勃勃的公共艺术倡议来为伦敦的这条著名河流庆祝。这将为伦敦提供一个新的、免费的和具有永久吸引力的机会,让市民在一年中的每一天,全天候地地享受这条河。该项目将作为一个典范,鼓励参与者使用最新的绿色技术。

由罗斯柴尔德基金会支持的照亮河流基金会从民间募集了大约2000万英镑的资金。并组成了一个由广泛的公众支持者和利益相关者组成的联盟,其中包括伦敦市长。

现在,随着“照亮河流”国际设计竞赛的推出,基金会正在寻找一个充满灵感的多学科设计团队,可以为从阿尔伯特桥到塔桥之间的17座伦敦最著名的桥梁创造一个优雅和有魅力、世界一流的质量的轻艺术设施。

艺术家和照明设计师、工程师、建筑师、技术专家和其他任何人,都有机会参与这次难得的机会,去影响这座世界上最大的城市的身份和体验。

 Overview
The competition’s unique design challenge is to create an elegant and charismatic light art installation of world-class quality for London’s most celebrated bridges.

For more than two millennia, the River Thames has been integral to London’s evolution, shaping its communities and driving its economy. It continues to provide a huge source of pleasure for both Londoners and the nearly thirty million visitors drawn to London each year.

In daylight, the Thames speaks for itself, but on winter afternoons and at night it fades into a ribbon of darkness. London’s natural centrepiece becomes shadowy and obscure, inhibiting the atmosphere in many of the public spaces surrounding it.

Yet, with light as a medium for public art fascinating artists and audiences across the world, and with new lighting technology dramatically reducing energy consumption and making cities greener, London now has the opportunity to creatively reclaim the river after dark.

The Illuminated River Foundation will celebrate London’s famous river through one of the most ambitious public art initiatives in Europe in recent years. This will provide London with a new, free, permanent attraction, allowing the public to enjoy the river, all day-round, and all year. The project will act as an exemplar, encouraging engagement with the latest green technologies.

The funds for this circa £20m project will be raised, largely from private sources, by the Illuminated River Foundation, backed by the Rothschild Foundation. A broad coalition of public supporters and stakeholders includes the Mayor of London, amongst others.

Now, with the launch of the Illuminated River International Design Competition, the Foundation is searching for an inspired multi-disciplinary design team that can create an elegant and charismatic light art installation of world-class quality for 17 of London’s most celebrated bridges – those between Albert and Tower.

For artists and lighting designers, engineers, architects and technologists and others, the project offers the rarest of opportunities – to influence the look, identity and experience of one of the world’s greatest cities.

The commission for the project will be awarded through this two-stage OJEU design competition. No design is required at the first stage. The five, or more, competition finalists will be asked to conceive a design masterplan for the project, while providing a concept design for four specific bridges: Westminster, Waterloo, London and Chelsea that responds to their unique and individual characteristics.

To enter the competition, competitors will need to fill out the online form(https://competitions.malcolmreading.co.uk/illuminatedriver/enter) and upload two documents detailing their proposed team and experience. The deadline for this is 14:00 BST 7 July 2016.

Brief

The competition jury encourages fresh and interesting collaborations between artists, lighting designers, architects, engineers, technologists and others.

The Foundation is searching for an inspired multi-disciplinary creative team with artistic vision and lighting expertise who can deliver this innovative and exciting project on time and without exceeding the budget.

Teams should be structured under a lead consultant identified within the submission with relevant skills and experience as described in the Search Statement. The competition jury encourages fresh and interesting collaborations between artists, lighting designers, architects, engineers, technologists and others – so additional skills may be proposed in your submission if you feel they are necessary.

The Brief covers architectural lighting (rather than operational lighting) and has two aspects. Firstly, a design masterplan for all 17 main road, rail and pedestrian bridges between Albert Bridge and Tower Bridge (including the proposed Nine Elms Bridge and Garden Bridge).

Secondly, a concept design lighting scheme addressing four individual bridges: Westminster, Waterloo, London and Chelsea and celebrating their unique qualities. These represent a sample of the bridge typologies within the overall masterplan.

An honorarium of £15,000 will be awarded to each of the shortlisted teams following selection of the winner.

The winning design team will be offered the commission to provide the detailed design of the full bridge installation (up to RIBA Stage 4) by the Foundation. The multiple bridge owners will assume responsibility for project delivery (with the selected design team retained to ensure design quality in delivery). The project will be phased with the first implementation phase expected to start in 2018 and the second in 2019-2020. For full details of the Brief, please see the Search Statement. To read about the second stage of the process, please see the draftCompetition Conditions, provided for information only at the first stage.

Strategic priorities:

The design needs to:

Display outstanding aesthetic quality.
Show innovation and incorporate new, energy-saving, green technologies – and interactivity where possible.
Improve and enliven the atmosphere of the river after dark, increasing visitor dwell times in the area.
Be economic to install and maintain.
Show an awareness of the heritage significance of the bridges and their setting as well as engaging with contemporary themes.
Propose an approach for all the bridges while responding to the individual and unique characteristics of each bridge.

Practical and technical priorities:

The design needs to:

Create spectacle across the bridges for future events, such as national holidays, celebrations and memorials. To do this, the bridges should be controllable independently, within sub-groups or centrally (with prior agreement of the bridge owners).
Have an expected lifespan of 25 years.
Create a multi-level experience of the design as viewed by pedestrians on the bridges, from London’s riverbanks, from the air, from tall buildings and by river boat.
Address and respect the diverse natural environment and wildlife habitats in the river generally, and around the bridges specifically.
Be mindful of access over, and navigation under, the bridges.
Carefully consider proximity of residential development to the bridges.
Avoid creating pinch-points where visitors might crowd bridges.
Consider existing architectural lighting infrastructure – or places where operational and architectural lighting are the same (e.g. Millennium Bridge) – to avoid wasteful duplication and replacement, upgrading as appropriate.
Take account of public safety and accessibility, ensuring the appropriate technical, environmental and safety standards are met.
Require the least possible intrusion into the fabric of the structure; minimise the likelihood of vandalism; ensure ongoing maintainability without the need for difficult or onerous access arrangements.
