Lighting up the Dark Past of the Prince Edward Viaduct

A light installation twelve years in the making

By Graeme Bayliss

A suicide barrier was installed on the Prince Edward Viaduct, commonly known as the Bloor Viaduct, in 2003. Twelve years later, artist-architect Dereck Revington’s original vision for The Luminous Veil is slated to finally be realized this year. Revington, with the help of Mulvey & Banani International Inc., will illuminate the structure with LEDs that change colour with the weather, a symbolic statement of a bright future for a bridge that has a painful past. mbii.com
