Rambøll Lighting in collaboration with Rambøll Gothenburg developed a new lighting plan for Götaplatsen, one of the most prominent public spaces in the town of Gothenburg. The square is the cultural “heart“ of Gothenburg, and it is surrounded exclusively by buildings that house cultural activities: two museums, the concert hall, cinema and library.
The new lighting concept aims to fulfil two main goals. First, to improve general security at the square at night-time, so people feel safe and inspired to use the square as a popular pedestrian route, as well as an attractive gathering spot.
Besides, the lighting also contributes to the beautification of the square, by enhancing the beauty of the characteristic architectural and spatial features: facades, walls, monuments and trees.
The project was completed in 2011.
