Uljanik shipyard, Croatia

Pula’s Uljanik shipyard is one of the oldest still in operation today. In 2000 the city began considering relocating the shipyard to free up area for tourism. A Croatian lighting designer however decided to illuminate the shipyard itself and it could be an attraction. The Lighting Giants project came alive in 2014 at Visualia, a festival of digital art and lighting design. The eight cranes at Uljanik are illuminated every night in different colours. Pula also has a spectacular Roman amphitheatre, the Pula Arena also serves as a venue for many concerts. Photo credit: Miro onoff (flickr)
