Alte Oper Lanterns


A collaborative team of engineers, material scientists, architects, students and industry have come together to produce the Alte Oper Lanterns. This is an installation that uses improved phosphorescent long afterglow materials formed to produce glowing lanterns. Instead of the lantern consisting of a cover and a separate light source, our structures will be the light source, passively illuminating the pergola structure in front of the Alte Oper.
The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University have developed a longer lasting phosphorescent blue and green pigment that can be incorporated into coatings and fibres. This material has the ability to last upto 2 days with minimal exposure to natural or artificial light and is currently being tested on building surfaces as a sustainable way to highlight areas. The lanterns will demonstrate the lighting strength of this material and the colour range, inviting visitors to sit under the lanterns and enjoy the view to the fountain and Alte Oper as part of the Luminale event in the city.
