LEDVANCE lighting solutions installed in the Propylaeum for the light action “Kunstareal verbindet” created a robust, high-intensity, wind and weatherproof lighting solution suitable for continuous use. 


The challenge of the project was letting the Propylaeum, a symbol at Munich, shine in a new light. The original design of the architect was emphasized by the lighting design integrated into the existing architecture. The light installation had to meet the strict static and urban planning requirements of the landmark.


To meet the enormous dimensions of the light installation and architecture; wind and weatherproof IP65 certified lighting solution were needed for continuous use and at the same time produces homogeneous illumination in terms of colour temperature and luminosity. 


LEDVANCE high-quality standards luminaires are also weatherproof and ideally suited for continuous outdoor use. Due to the constant colour temperature, a consistent lighting pattern could be created, with low energy consumption. By controlling the LED STRIP with remote access, the lighting situation could be adjusted, even after the installation of the steel frame. A seamless transition between architecture and lighting was creating a fusion of light and architecture was achieved. Luminaires used in the project generate over one million lumens of luminosity, illuminate the monumental size of the building. Yul Zeser, an artist of the art installation in the Propylaeum, emphasizes: “There are times when art and culture need more space than just an idea.“ 


To meet all the demands of the lighting installation of continuous operation and outdoor use in winter weather and low temperatures, the ECO HIGH POWER FLOODLIGHT 500W and LED STRIP VALUE-500 RGB PROTECTED from LEDVANCE were chosen.
