- QPark - Musgrove Park NHS Hospital - Taunton - is an
architectural lighting installation that combines light and wooden louvres to
create an animated facade that softens the utilitarian nature of the car park
and creates a positive and uplifting visual spectacle for the hospital and it's
weave has the appearance of a woven fabric of light with varying textures shot
through with fine threads of pure colour. From the inside there are a succession
of views affected by the different colours and degrres of transparency through
the louvres. Extra lights installed in the stairwell at the entrance create
a colour sequence for people walking up the stairs. Using
IP rated fluorescent tubes fitted with special coloured sleeves and by carefully
designing the various angles of the louvre blades intense bands of electric
colour mix with light entering and leaving the car park to create an intricate,
texture of light, colour and transparency. Design
+ light animation.
light weave was commissioned by Qpark as part of the 'Art for Life' program
at Musgrove Park NHS Hospital Trust Taunton - Architects Potter and Holmes Architects.
