ARCHITECTURE, AESTHETICS AND URBANISM

Lucy the Elephant - Margate, New Jersey

 Lucy the Elephant is a wooden, 65-foot tall, 90 ton, elephant facing the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors enter through her hind legs where they are able to view her newly restored interiors. Constructed in 1881 as a tourist attraction, Lucy has remained as such despite a short period of time when she was used as a home and then tavern. She’s survived hurricanes, a fire and a two block move. In 1976 Lucy was recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. Tours of Lucy’s interior are only available May through mid-June.

Cagna Illuminations

This Cathedral of light was displayed in the recent 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium with 55,000 LED lights covering this immense structure. . The entrance was through a giant colonnade, 28 meters high, of light and effervescent colours. The whole structure, despite its size, still only consumed 20Kwatt/h of electricity.
