Basilica Cistern, Istanbul.

Project by Studioillumina. Renders by Filippo Marai

Realized in collaboration with Studioillumina, the renovation of the ancient roman Cisterna in Istanbul is strongly impacted by lighting.

 

The lighting design describes the visitor's travel within the Cistern, dividing the experience into two moments: the going and the coming back. The two moments are differently described by light, which also adds a touch of mystery and of history.

Project in progress.
