Reference light art in Landshut
The colourful play of light inspires the imagination
Every evening, light transforms into art on the recently finished plaza in front of the state tax office. Thirty-six columns arranged in a precise geometric grid playfully usher in the evening, chasing the austerity of the day away with a fascinating display of colour.
Tom Kristen, an electronics technician, architect and freelance artist based in Bavaria, got the nod with his column grid concept in the City of Landshut's public design competition held in early 2010.
Placed on a 36-square metre area in front of the state tax office, the columns indicate the entrance to the government administration district and represent a visual point of reference from Landshut's medieval centre.
