GARE DU NORD

Synchro in City

At nighttime, the station comes to life through a light installation, breathing to the rhythm of its inner beat. A geo-poetical route shows the liveliness of the place, creating bonds and revealing the activity inside the station to travellers and passers-by.

 

Visible in the distance, the large covered walkway and branched structures are an invitation to explore this brand new, massive, metaphorical Parisian canopy. A rain of light gives an opportunity to feel the green freshness. It is the time for a new perception and for a dialogue between the light and the city, renewed with the seasons.

 

The functional and safety lights, beacons, signage system and signs are organized to create a luminous, harmonious and comfortable composition.
