Lightbridge

Long Beach Transit wanted to mark a ‘visible place or space’ (a transit node) at a key intersection in downtown Long Beach to indicate where a confluence of transit modalities come together: train, cab, city bus, car (parking) and tour bus. In addition, the project needed to create a ‘gateway’ into Long Beach’s commercial district from the Embarcadero and the Convention Center. A laserlight ‘bridge’ forms a ‘ lighted ceiling’ for the sculpture as it completes the color-light image of the digitally-programmed LED light sculpture.
