ARUP'S CITY LIGHT-SAUCERS

  • Comment

Arup Associates has completed this illuminated beacon (pictured) to highlight a new marketing suite it has also designed for the site of its Plantation Place scheme for British Land.The six-storey-high glass and steel beacon marks the entrance to the site in the City, appearing by day as translucent discs held by stainless steel rods, but by night seeming to hover in the air without structure. The 27m beacon sits on a limestone podium leading to the new marketing suite, itself designed as an 'architectural promenade'. The 61,500m 2Plantation Place includes offices and dealing floors and is due for completion in 2002.
