July 18 2012 — by Karina Armburg Jennings
Speirs + Major, along with West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture bv, have put forward an entry for the Lights over Kruunuvuorenranta competition in Helsinki, Finland.

Kruunuvuorenranta, a former oil port which is being redeveloped to become a new seaside district, directly faces the city of Helsinki. The competition is seeking a creative and artistically-oriented lighting scheme for Kruunuvuorenranta, taking into consideration the enhanced winter hours of darkness and the visibility of the district from Helsinki.

All images are currently confidential, with the winner to be announced on 10 October as part of Kruunuvuorenranta's WDC light art project.
