In the heart of Beirut devastated by the war, beautiful buildings have been brought back to their ancient splendor during several years of untiring works of renovation by using an innovative lighting technique. Light Cibles was honoured with IALD Award of Excellence 2012 (International Association of Lighting Designers).

Lighting Beirut Architecture is the first project of its kind to permanently illuminate a large urban area using image projection. Tailor-made projectors trace the features of 28 heritage and contemporary building façades along a special heritage trail in the heart of historic Beirut.

Gobos were designed based on a special photographic survey of each individual building’s façade. Using oversized glass gobos allowed the designers to design high-definition images and projections. The resulting close relationship between the lighting concept and the architecture preserves the specific identity of each building. All fittings are located on the roofs of buildings facing chosen façades. A special fitting was developed to maintain the simplicity of the projector’s mechanics, while modifications made permanent exterior installation and uniform distribution of light possible. The façades of more contemporary buildings utilize a different concept. Modern buildings are treated with abstract frescos that introduce colored elements and textures derived from the original composition.

Completion Date: 2005

The head-quarters of the ” Gaz de Bordeaux ” company, a classic-style building dating from the beginning of the 20th century, was lit by Louis Clair in 1995. It has become one of the most eye-catching focal points in the city of Bordeaux. Louis’ son, Emmanuel Clair, took over for the new head-quarters, in the place Ravesies. He transformed the 12-metre high and 30-metre-wide façade into a gigantic video screen, with each window acting as a pixel. Since its inauguration, on October 28th 2005, the façade like double curtains has been animated by an image of the company’s logo, a flickering blue flame.
