Vintage Art Deco Railroad Underpass Gets Illuminated
Built in 1931, this Art Deco railroad underpass is a gateway between downtown Birmingham, Alabama and a new urban space called Railroad Park. In recent years, the tunnel was dark and had deteriorated into a dangerous area. To solve the problem, the city hired sculptor and public artist Bill FitzGibbons to create a lighting solution that would encourage more pedestrian traffic. Titled LightRails, the installation is composed of a network of computerized LEDs that that form various lighting patterns in the previously darkened underpass. The result is a beautifully lit, vintage space that more resembles an art installation than a lighting project.
