Gates of Light-Retroreflective Architecture by Daan Roosegaarde

Daan Roosegaarde Creates The Gates of Light Retroreflective Architecture

Daan Roosegaarde, the maker of the awarded design Retroreflective Architecture :Gates of Light by Daan Roosegaarde spells out, GATES OF LIGHT brings the monumental structures on the Afsluitdijk (legendary Dutch dike built in 1932) back to their former glory. In the dark, the architecture of these structures is illuminated by the headlamps of passing cars, reflecting the light through small prisms. If there are no cars on the road, the structures are not illuminated. This way of using light requires zero energy and does not contribute to light pollution..
