In contrast with the darkness of Zurriola beach, the Kursaal was full of light in the night of Donostia. Whether during the day or night, this building became an extraordinary landmark, due to its architecture and powerful shining presence. The techniques used to light up the building were based on the ‘focal glow’ concept, a lighting that directs you to look at something. Following that idea of the light that directs the gaze, various diffusing, reflecting and opaque materials were added to turn the façade into a shiny chromatic spectre. The big coloured lantern attracted the attention of public, in order to spread the festive message of the Winter Solstice Call: shining together, that’s how we build the city.
