Light House Weather Building (Docklands)




Light House is Melbourne’s first real-time weather display. Located in Victoria Harbour at the junction of Bourke and Collins Streets, the state-of-the-art lighting installation illuminates a 15-storey residential building façade, forecasting the weather and displaying how the weather feels in a visually spectacular manner.

Light House is programmed to run from dusk until midnight each night. For five minutes on the hour, every hour, a link to the Bureau of Meteorology’s weather station provides a data feed that allow the lights to forecast the following day’s weather in a literal interpretation, where moving lights will reflect conditions such as rain, clouds, wind or sunshine. For the remainder of each hour, a weather station located on the roof of the building provides data to create abstract light movements reflecting the way the weather ‘feels’ at the time and is constantly but gently changing. From midnight until dawn the feature goes into a static phase that reflects the moon patterns.

Light House offers a visual connection and interpretation of what it feels like to live in Victoria Harbour and be part of the ever-changing climate. Melburnians’ obsession with weather was something that stood out for artist Bruce Ramus - who has lived all over the world and doesn’t know any other city where people talk about the weather so much.

Light House is best viewed from Buluk Park 894 – 910 Collins St, Docklands.
