The market place in Neubrandenburg has always formed the center of this “town of four gates” in the Mecklenburg lake district. The central element of the lighting design is formed by ten meter-high light poles which, in their deliberate proportions, respond to the generous size of the square. Through the light poles, a spatial arrangement was created that gives the square a formal composition.

Urban Space +
The poles lend structure to the square by day. The light gives the square a contour at night. The placement and height of the poles are matched to the urban layout and viewpoints.
Special lighting effects were designed for the light poles for the Christmas season and included in the overall conception.
Artificial Light +
The light pole is a customized construction and designed in detail. Even the process for changing the lamps was simulated in an animated film.
