The Espace Danse at the Wilder Building is one of four leading dance organizations under one roof to revitalize the Quartier des spectacles in Montreal.
A grid of light points behind the glass walls to create light bursts visible from the outside. The outer envelopes of the annexes serve as a support for the diffusion of the inner light by their materiality. The combination of the luminous expression of the dot pattern with the diffusing envelope serves as a lighting device for the architectural lighting of the Wilder Building.
The luminous identity evolves during the evening and events identified. The highlighting contains three layers of information that are both autonomous and interactive to each other to produce the evolutionary result. Indeed, there is the constellation of small points which defines the space of diffusion, then the two layers of means and big points characterize the movement of the dancers or significant movements for the illuminated place.
The facades come alive to the rhythm of the dancers, to create an urban ballet on the place of the festivals.
