INFORMATION POINT
the first realization on the light meridian

 

1. GENERAL INFORMATION POINT:  

MUZE’UM L, LIGHT & LANDSCAPE / SITE ZILVERBERG, ROESELARE #BE
A RECEPTIVE AND EXPERIMENTAL SPACE FOR THE LIGHT MERIDIAN

in order to launch the idea of "light meridian - art on a line", the private muze’um L (Light & Landscape) on site zilverberg is the first practical realization and starting point. it has been inaugurated on 21 sept. 2014 by the mayor of the city of roeselare and former minister of culture for the flemish government /

i architect marc van schuylenbergh proposes a minimalist architecture that literally captures the light meridian: a longitudinal cleft runs through a white rectangular building, both on the front façade and through the roof towards the south wall / by channelling the sunshine he used multiple targeted architectural and landscape interventions / the sunlight gets creative: drawing geometric patterns on the walls and floors / the sun reflects the heat on the south side of a wind-protected 30 m-diameter amphitheatre / the muze’um L acts as a catalyst for creations of light, line and landscape / as during a year there is always another sun position and an other light, the artists can use these phenomena to optimize their in-situ creations around light, line, scenery and longitude / artists experience and include the architectural and natural environment in order to develop their idea / in the context of the general info point of the light meridian line the muze'um L exhibits both artists and galleries as museums / on that way the muze’um L can gather, inform and divulge all the cultural events on the light meridian line.

'IN SITU' ARCHITECTURE WITH A SLIT

2. AN 'IN SITU' AGRICULTURAL LINE

on the northern side of site zilverberg a local farmer saw white clover on a 100 m passage across his potatoes: the passage is exactly consistent with the course of the light meridian and continues to be seen from the air. such agricultural interventions are easily possible on other points on the light meridian art line

3. 'IN SITU' INFO SHELTERS

proposal of jean-pierre galeyn #BE

this simple form, inspired by a child design is efficient as landmark on the light meridian/ robust and secure with a large screw in rural soil

it is real noon when the shadow of the construction lies exactly in the extension of the shelter itself / on the floor info about the light meridian can be applied
