Turku City’s Aurajoki river is crossed by the Kirjastosilta bridge, a popular pedestrian bridge. It is awarded multiple times for its finished design. The sculptural bridge curves over the river in harmony with the culturally important landscape.
The calm and modern lighting of the glass railing is the most significant element in the dark time view. Its low-key and atmospherically cool light converses with the warm tones of the surroundings. Illuminated handrails form surfaces that also act as general lighting. As a counterweight to the railing lighting, the bridge’s curved shape underneath has also been brought out with light.
Programmable lighting also enables the bridge to shine with different colors during the festive and themed days of the year. Thus the bridge stays interesting for the citizens year after year.
