Competition :: GLOW by SHIFTBoston
Submit by February 3, 2012

SHIFTBoston, in association with LightBoston and the Friends of Copley Square, are asking artists, architects, urban planners, sculptors, lighting designers, and landscape architects around the world to create a NEW approach for lighting Copley Square. We want to make Copley one of the greatest squares in the world using LIGHT.

Consider the circulation in and programming of the square and envision a new lighting concept which might PLAY against or build upon each. Proposals could incorporate any of the following features: recessed lighting, light-play on steam and/or water, freestanding and sculptural lighting, digital imagery, moving light, colored light, new landscape features including paving patterns, vegetation, existing facade light washing. State of the art, high efficiency, illumination technology with use of alternative energy sources is desirable.
