Projected imagery


links modern-day life with historic architecture.


ZimmerFrei artists’ collective and Radiance35 have used Rosco custom gobos to provide a view into the 21st century potential of well-


preserved medieval buildings. ‘Through the Walls’, is an award-winning, artistic lighting installation in the Saint- Jacques district of the city, near Brussels’ Grand-Place. The lighting design team from Radiance35 along with the ZimmerFrei artists were the creators. They project imaginary openings onto the facades of the buildings which engage the curiosity and imagination of people walking by, helping them to envision present-day spaces, interiors and places of life and work inside this district’s medieval structures. ‘Through the Walls’ has won two awards which include the Special Jury Award for the Association of French Lighting Designers and recognition from the Master of Public Work awarded by the Federation Wallonia-Brussels. “The greatest challenge of the project was creating clear, crisp projections of


fine-detailed images for a permanent installation in an urban environment.” says Lighting Designer for Radiance35, Isabelle Corten adding: “Most of the fixtures had oblique projection angles, which necessitated significant keystone correction. The professionals at Rosco calculated and implemented the proper modifications to the gobos perfectly so that the artists’ original artwork was rendered properly on the buildings.”


The Saint-Jacques district of Brussels is the


best preserved medieval community in Europe, characterised by its urbanism. The Designers at Radiance35 projected 20 custom glass gobos throughout the neighbourhood to highlight the district’s architectural identity, which is attracting attention and encouraging visitors to explore and consider living and working in one of these buildings.
