The lighting project of the EXPO Bridge in Rho designed by ACPV ARCHITECTS has been a great challenge due to its unique scale.
The three bridges complex is located in the northern outskirts of Milan and apart from an important infrastructure for the city it represents an iconic view being almost the threshold to the site that would accommodate the globally known event of EXPO 2015.
Therefore, the lighting project and the resulting nightscape was a crucial image for Milan’s effort being the protagonist around the world.
The idea for illuminating such a sculptural bridge was based on underlining the original architect’s intention: revealing at night time the clean and slender geometry of the bridge giving out a seemingly eery, light and effortless image.
