The three-floor installation comprises three lighting spaces positioned exactly on top of each other. These rooms are linked with each other by glazed walk-over sight openings illuminated by Zumtobel LED light lines in variable colours.
The ground floor features a black granite slab dotted with STARFLEX light outlets by Zumtobel. Looking down from the first floor, the light points form the starry sky of the antipodes to the Kunsthalle – the sky at the opposite point of the Earth. Looking upwards through an opening in the elliptical chamber on the second floor, visitors can see the (starry) sky above Bremen.
Thus, visitors seem to be standing right in the centre of the Earth between two sections of the sky.

Dr. Harald Sommerer, CEO Zumtobel Group, will open the evening with a short welcome address, followed by Kirstin Feireiss from the Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin, who, as the curator of the Zumtobel Group Award, will in particular highlight the importance of the award for the architectural culture. Stefan Behnisch, renowned architect and chairman of the Group Award jury, will then present the prize-winning projects in detail.
The variety of project approaches presented will make the exhibition a fascinating dialogue on the subjects of efficiency and sustainability, providing exciting perspectives and ideas on urban development and architecture. In addition to the prize-winning projects, eight other distinguished projects will be shown at the Light Forum.
The prize winner in the "Built Environment" category is the project by the TRIPTYQUE architecture firm in São Paulo. Their HARMONIA 57 project presents an environmentally and architecturally trendsetting office and gallery building. The nonprofit Terreform ONE + Terrefuge group of designers from New York City could not fail to impress the jury with its New York City Resource and Mobility project in the "Research & Initiative" category.
