Shifting and evolving as it travels to rivers throughout the world, the River of Light has gained local and international recognition through its ability to not only engage communities to participate in the work, but also to highlight the importance of river preservation and water conversation on a global scale. The River of Light is a world touring art installation by Creatmosphere that combines floating lights, sound and new technologies to celebrate the rivers of the world through public art.

2013 marks the 100th birthday of the City of Red Deer and to celebrate this the Red Deer River will become the territory and stage for a series of daylight sculptural and sound installations and night-time light and video interventions that aim to create new Points of View for the community to discover and engage with their city and river.
The River of Lights: Points of View has been commissioned by the
Central Alberta Historical Society for the Red Deer City Centennial.

ONLY IN PARIS ~ INCREDIBLE!!!
The creative mind filled with childhood memories of joyful play comes up with an extraordinary proposal ~ Je suis très impressionné.
In Paris, an inflatable trampoline bridge has been proposed by the Paris-based architectural studio Atelier Zündel Cristea firm to span the Seine River. This would allow travellers a unique and fun method of crossing the Seine River near the existing Pont de Bir-Hakeim.
The three 30-meter-round inflatable modules are held together with a cord to form a self-supporting structure. Under the right amount of tension, each circle’s sides flip up, keeping Parisian bouncers at play from flopping into the river. Trampoline mesh is stretched along the inside of each ring, and floats above the water, where participants can enjoy the Seine without dipping into it.
CNet reports the proposal is part of a contemporary bridge design competition named “A Bridge in Paris,” sponsored by Arch Triumph. Mesh trampolines would stretch almost 100 feet across giant PC rings inflated with approximately 130,000 cubic feet of air.
Quoted from The Huffington Post: “It appears to us that Paris has the bridges and passages necessary for the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic across its waterways” said architecture firm AZC on its website. “Our intention is to invite its visitors and inhabitants to engage on a newer and more playful path across this same water.”
This will certainly be a most interesting topic
to follow-up on!
Pour l’entreprise Atelier Zündel Cristea nous vous souhaitons bonne chance dans la compétition!
