Engineer: Buro Happold

This project is an initiative announced by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Its goal is to conceive of new uses for the Erie Canal system, from recreation to ecological preservation to economic development. OVI’s lighting design work is a catalyst and setting out point for the ambitious project and will breathe new life into several of the original structures including: two lighthouses, locks, dams and several bridges, including a massive triple-arched bridge in Amsterdam.  OVI’s designs for these structures include a spectrum of inventive solutions from classic architectural lighting to projection and use of lasers to provide unique visitor experiences.
