SWIMMING IN LIGHT


1.
An illuminating connection over Inderhavn Canal which can be crossed by swimming, walking and cycling. The moving structure illuminates Inderhavn Canal and extends the day in Copenhagen.

2.
It creates a spectacle in the heart of Copenhagen, focusing local and tourist attention to the ephemeral caustic illumination effects created by the glazed moving structure and two telescopic 500m3 swimming pools. It directs tourist attention away from the famed experiemental Noma Restaurant which now has the best view of the canal and Swimming in Light.

3.
It brings the beloved activity of experiencing Copenhagen from within its clean waters above the water and put on show for all of Copenhagen.

4.
It reimagines Jorn Utzon's Peblingesøen Swimming Pool on existing concrete piers of Inderhavn Bridge that was meant to be discrete on the water front. However, two concrete piers of this bridge have been left in Copenhagen since construction stopped in 2011.

5.
Swimming In Light transforms the central canal in Copenhagen into a dynamic tension between the sensual and technical in order to capture the viewers attention. This could be on a boat crossing through the bridge, swimming above the canal or viewing from the waterfront.

Connecting East & West

Telescopic Motion of Crossing Opening to walk, cycle or swim.
Structural movement is drawn every 5m, indicated by the white datums and layered into one image to express the motion of the project.

Underwater Inderhavn Canal

Experiencing Inderhavn Canal underwater. Over the last 15 years, Copenhagen has transformed its former polluted industrial waters to the cleanest in the world. Tourist and Local communities enjoy experiencing Copenhagen from the canal baths in winter and summer.

Swimming in Light Above Inderhavn Canal

It creates a spectacle in the heart of Copenhagen, focusing local and tourist attention to the ephemeral caustic illumination effects created by the glazed moving structure and two telescopic 500m3 swimming pools. It directs tourist attention away from the famed experiemental Noma Restaurant which now has the best view of the canal and Swimming in Light.

Caustic Illumiantion Spectacle

Caustic light are rays which reflected or refracted by a curved surface and the projection of that envelope of rays on to a surface.

It creates a spectacle in the heart of Copenhagen, focusing local and tourist attention to the ephemeral caustic illumination effects created by the glazed moving structure and two telescopic 500m3 swimming pools.

Caustic Illumination Effect Mechanisms

Left: Apparatus to illuminate moving water from below and control water refraction and reflection of light in Nyhavn.

Middle: 400x300x250mm Glass Wax cast of Jorn Utzon's Peblingesøen Swimming Pool Structure.

Right: 1:1 Glass Slump and artificial light that Inderhavn Connection wings are built from. These control caustic illumination and allow for swimming in light to take place.
