The University of Liverpool was enthusiastic about the idea of illuminating the facade of their Active Learning Laboratory using endless artistic colour scenes to highlight the building’s presence, report www.mediaarchitecture.org. They wanted to make a statement that the University was not only providing a new education building with first class facilities, but also one which would advertise itself to the City of Liverpool and to the wider audience in an area which surrounds the city from a far.
There is also lot of competition to attract students between the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University: the client wanted this building to “outshine the competition.” Being located next to the Roman Catholic Cathedral, the highest landmark in the City, Arup Lighting proposed the use of rich vibrant, multi coloured images to “paint” the facades with light in order to raise the profile of the University at night.
