Lines of light wrap the stadium’s striking façade and frame views of the illuminated 93-foot-tall 3D-printed sculptural torch, concourse and VIP clubs that are visible from outside. The concourse-level bar wraps around the torch, while bar-front lighting mimics the stadium façade and its illuminated curved lines.
Linear luminaires curve and slice through the clubs and concourses, serving as design elements to help conceptually connect complex multilevel spaces. The black and white material palette serves as a high contrast backdrop for directed illumination, aimed to reveal the depth, texture and specularity of the materials. While luminaires are often specific visual elements, additional concealed sources fill in light levels for visual tasks, where dark finishes obscure any perception of brightness. This balance maintains the dramatic experience within the space.
The concourse creates a language of linear pendants radial to the field, with integrated lighting at display walls. Seating-integrated lighting and a backlit ceiling element provide ambient light for VIP suites, while lines of light in a black ceiling reference the gridiron. The consistent language of linear bar-integrated lighting carries throughout the VIP clubs, where each application still allows for individual architectural expression.
