Tidal Beacon was designed by internationally-recognized artist and sculptor Ned Kahn. The sculpture captures the essence of Halifax's vibrant and bustling cityscape, with its flowing tides, maritime architecture, and deep natural beauty. Tidal Beacon sits on top of Rise Again, the standalone building featured at the edge of the waterfront in Queen’s Marque courtyard. Tidal Beacon transforms based on tides, weather, and the surrounding environment. Our Vivid Wave - Silicone LED Strip Lighting creates an event called ‘Lunar Crest’. The event is an eight-minute crescendo of shimmering lights followed by a two-minute ‘Beacon Turn,’ which transforms the sculpture into a rotating light.
