At first glance, these bricks look like solid metal. However, it’s the chrome and nickel coating that give the reflective finish on common, inexpensive bricks. When strategically placed, they are able to reflect natural light from one building to another. These reflections created bright spots along the dark alley they were testing on, providing a source of light for those passing through.
The project has been discontinued after an unsuccessful crowdsourcing campaign. However, it can be looked upon as a source of inspiration, shedding light on how neighbourhoods can brighten streets without the use of electricity.
