LDP is consulting the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir in the myriad lighting requirements on its vast campus ranging from the huge temple halls and the grand Krishna Lila Theme Park to the passages and hallways, holding lounges, working spaces and various other areas in the sprawling campus.
As designers who deploy the elusive power of light as the one medium that integrates every visual aspect of the built environment, LDP understands that light is far more than just functional or ‘cosmetic.’ Rather, it touches human psychology and perception directly, in a powerful, subliminal way. Light is nothing until it reaches a surface and given this intrinsic relationship, LDP is collaborating with VCM and the design team to create perfection at the juncture between light and form, helping to transform the perception of the built environment.
With its monumental contemporary form, lighting the temple poses a unique set of challenges. Bringing together the distant vision and a personalized context, the lit environment will create a seamless experience of the intangible aspects of Braj and its rich narratives. Utilizing state-of-the-art technologies the design will ensure minimum disturbance to the environment and remain sustainable over an extended period. In the interior spaces light complements the spirituality of the temple. Expanding on the traditional use of darkness and light, the VCM provides a tableau for a contemporary expression of the divine.
