Reflections on the Waterfront

Manchester, UK, based lighting rental company dbn supplied large scale spectacular architectural lighting to Culture Liverpool for a special event celebrating both the 100th anniversary of the iconic Liver Building and the opening of the new Museum of Liverpool - the largest newly-built national museum in Britain for more than a century - both located on the City’s famous Pier Head waterfront.

On the Liver Building, dbn had to ensure that light filled the spaces between the outer limits of the centrally positioned projections and the edges of the building, highlighting in the process, its full architectural features and extending the visual viewing surface to cover the entire front facade.

Robinson explained that their previous experience of lighting the Liver Building for the ‘transition’ event at the end of Liverpool’s Capital of Culture Year in 2008 definitely helped with creating a lighting scheme for this event. However, they took a completely different approach both times due to the unique and individual nature of the projects.
