Second year of Zurich’s horrible christmas light
The new 2005 Christmas lights, called "The World’s Largest Timepiece". Designed by Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler, the decorations replace the previous illuminations that have lit up Zürich Bahnhofstrasse since 1971.
Second year, and I am still finding lightning cold and ridicoulous.
It is made of 275 seven-metre-long tubular bulbs stretches 1.1 kilometres down the middle of the street. Each tube has 32 light points, which turn on and off. While this has been clearly made by a group of designer, they have less if nothng to do with the spirit of Christmas. By luck, some perpendicular street (Rennweg and others) are way more traditionnal. The only question that remains is how many years, will the city keep them…I hope not 25 years…
