Our work at Centennial Olympic Park includes eight light towers, each over sixty-five feet tall, the Quilt of Nations Canopy, information kiosks, wayfinding stelai and other sculptural and orientation aids.
The light towers are mounted on sculpted concrete pedestals, each having a different height, that position the towers at the same elevation, regardless of the slope of the ground. The body of each tower consists of rolled perforated aluminum, finished seamless, with a ‘floating ring’ crown. To perfectly space the circular openings in the tapering tower body these thousands of holes were drilled by hand. Internal lighting shines through these openings and spills out over the crowns above and provides a compelling accent to the park’s night time light-scape.
