So a few weeks ago, I asked a good friend who is a lighting designer to point me in a good direction for some uber cool lighting and yesterday she sent me this little gem.
Located in Teruel Spain, the Torico Square is known for being a tourist attraction (after seeing these pictures, I would love to see this in person!) with its amazing architecture and historical elements. So when the city went to b720 Arquitectos for a new and contemporary addition to their lighting and paving systems, who would have thought this would be the result! Designed using 1230 LEDs, night time has become one of the most popular times to visit. Each prefabricated luminary measures in between 18-30 inches and is recessed into granite pavers and covered in tempered glass. In addition to the LEDs on the ground, they were also added to the facades giving off a glowing hue. One of the main problems b720 claimed for historical buildings is that they are always way too bright. Overall, this place looks amazing, just gives me anther reason to put Spain on the list of must sees, aside from my obsession with Gaudi!
