Our architectural sculpture work at Centennial Olympic Park takes many forms. Among them are eight sixty-foot-tall light towers, the Quilt of Nations Canopy, information kiosks and wayfinding monuments.
We installed the light towers on sculpted concrete pedestals. Because each pedestal is a different height the tower tops are at the same elevation, regardless of the slope of the ground. The body of each tower consists of rolled perforated aluminum capped with a ‘floating ring’ crown. To perfectly space the circular openings in the tapering tower body we drilled these thousands of holes by hand. Internal lighting shines through these openings and spills out over the crowns above. The towers provide a compelling accent to the park’s night time light-scape.
Our latest addition is “The Spectacular,” an architectural sculpture (and selfie-magnet) consisting of an 11-foot-tall by 23-1/2-foot-wide rendering of the Olympic Ring logo. The aluminum sculpture weighs nearly 5000 lbs. and is the main gateway element at the East entrance to the park.
