Every Night for A Moment

Last month we shared a story on designer Daan Roosegaarde’s wonderful solar powered bike path in the Netherlands. Now he has worked his magic with a stunning installation at Amsterdam’s historic Central Station. Developed in collaboration with scientists from the University of Leiden, the beautiful light display uses liquid crystal technology to project a vibrant, multicolored visualization across the station’s east façade windows.

The installation marks the 125th anniversary the Central Station and UESCO’s International Year of Light 2015. The light show will be visible for the entire year, but only for a moment an hour after sunset each evening.
