    Description

    Through its lighting, the Odeon Tower at night becomes an allegory of the Mediterranean sea.
    The reflections of the sun, the movements from the water surface give the tower at night a complete metamorphose.
    Horizontal sparks of light retransmitted vertically.
    These aquatic substances are captured from the heart of the Mediterranean, reworked and soothed out in a slow movement through a variation of programs.
    These animations are the adornment of the tower.

    A new immaterial skin that is in constant change.

    This metaphor in constant change is embedded with points of lights placed on each balcony railing, creating this way a monumental screen.

    Many programs come to give different patterns during each maritime season, symbolizing the ever-changing seascape and also other events such as solstice and equinox…
