At the entrance of the mellat park in Northern Tehran, an immersive Light tunnel installation was constructed and developed by Iranian-based practice AEPioneer — celebrating the anniversary of two shiite imams’ birth. The garden in which the Lighting project has been set up, is located at Valiasr Street — which stretches from North to South of Tehran.
AEPioneer‘s Light tunnel project, financed by the beautification organization of Tehran Municipality, is created to provide an atmosphere of entertainement as well as a cozy milieu for local citizens by light.
Spanning 80 meters long, the installation is composed of 13,000 light bulbs in total – with changing color hues that offer warmth, dynamism and a sense of wonder. Ranging from calming blue to striking red, the installation creates unexpected abstractions of landscapes and spaces.
The structure of the light tunnel was made of a steel space-frame, with a 14 mm profile; it consists of an oval shaped support with a maximum height of 3.2 meters and a span of 8.3 meters.
AEPioneer was responsible for five days of maintenance, and the final delivery was executed later on. The installation at the mallat park has been showcased to the public for a period of one month.
