Last night the lighting on British Airways i360 was switched on for the first time, bringing the final touch to the spectacular new Brighton beach attraction.
David Marks of Marks Barfield Architects, which conceived and designed British Airways i360, said,
“The concept for the lighting at the top of the tower is that it ‘breathes’, gently increasing and decreasing in intensity at the average rate of a human being breathing at rest.”
The overall effect of the lighting on the tower and viewing pod together emulates British Airways colours of red, white and blue. The tower colour bursts and pod lights switch on at sunset and off at midnight every night, while the aeronautical safety lighting will remain switched on at all times.
