‘GATES OF LIGHT’ by Daan Roosegaarde

The new futuristic entrance of the dike GATES OF LIGHT brings the 60 monumental floodgates of 1932 back to their former glory. The structures, which were originally designed by Dirk Roosenburg, the grandfather of Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, have been fully restored and augmented with a retro-reflective layer. In the dark, the architecture of these structures is illuminated by the headlamps of passing cars, reflecting the light through small prisms. If there are no cars on the road, the structures are not illuminated. This way of using light requires zero energy and does not contribute to light pollution. It will be accompanied by the installation of WINDVOGEL, energy generating kites, and GLOWING NATURE, immersive bioluminescent algae placed in a historical bunker.
