Illuminated River Second Phase
17th July, 2020

The second phase of the Illuminated River public art commission has launched today, on the first anniversary of the completion of phase one.

Illuminated River is a public art commission to light up 14 central London Thames bridges at night.

Site works will extend the light artwork to include an additional five bridges, from Blackfriars in the east to Lambeth Bridge in the west.

Price & Myers has been working with the Illuminated River Foundation, artist Leo Villareal Studio, and architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands on the project.

By accelerating site surveys before the lockdown, the team was able to ensure the design, fabrication and planning of the second phase could progress as and that, despite Covid–19, the public artwork for London is now on site and remains on track for delivery in Spring 2021.
