Aucklands ‘Te Ara I Whiti - Light Path’ - a design collaboration between Monk MacKenzie and LandLAB - cleaned up at the Designers Institute of New Zealand (DINZ) Best Awards on Friday night. The project was awarded Gold Pins in each of the Colour, Public Good and Public Spaces categories as well as the prestigious overall PurpIe Pin Award for Spatial Design. https://bestawards.co.nz/studios/landlab
Lightpath transforms a redundant piece of motorway infrastructure into a playful and sculptural piece of cycling infrastructure threaded through Auckland’s inner city motorway junction. The design creates a hybrid space that supports its intended function as a cycle path but also enables exploration, discovery and occupation. The path enables a journey and episodic experience that engages with both the infrastructural landscape of the motorway and contextual views of the wider landscape. Three hundred individual LED light poles controlled by sensors are arranged as a spine down the city side of the path creating a living and breathing interactive urban light sculpture that responds to varying patterns and intensities of user movement.
Pleased to recieve a Heroes Award on behalf of everyone we have, are and will collaborate with whilst helping make this fine city of ours even better. Thanks Denizen.
