Quebec's 'Plan lumière' Sets the City Aglow at Night

"Quebec City's Plan lumière represents a breakthrough in urban planning in Canada. Most Canadian cities have landmark properties that have been the objects of individualized special light plans. Quebec's Plan lumière has taken architectural lighting to a more collective level – and yes, it has made a very beautiful city even more beautiful than it used to be."
