Illuminated River More information

Illuminated River is an ambitious public art commission that has transformed the capital's bridges at night. Phase one of Illuminated River, covering London, Cannon Street, Southwark and Millennium bridges was completed in 2019 and phase two, covering Blackfriars, Waterloo, Golden Jubilee, Westminster and Lambeth bridges, was completed in 2021.

The project saw internationally acclaimed light artist Leo Villareal and British architectural practice Liftschutz Davidson Sandilands use the latest LED technology to paint the bridges with light, producing beautiful patterns that subtly unfold across the bridge structures. The project is sustainable and energy-efficient paying attention to heritage, wildlife and the built environment to create an exceptional transformation that celebrates the role that the Thames bridges play in the enduring global identity of London.
