The Emirates Air Line, or Thames Cable Car, was first conceived in 2010. It was designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects, and crosses the river between Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks at a height of 90m.

The lighting scheme not only considers the interior of the gondolas, but the exterior of the gondolas, towers and platforms have also being sensitively lit to encompass the contrasting surrounds – the bright, busy centres of the O2 Arena and ExCeL London as opposed to the dark River Thames – in the hope that the cable car itself will become as much of an attraction as the scenic views of London which visitors and locals alike will be able to soak up whilst riding it.
