Architectural SSL Product Innovation Awards (PIA) 2012: Most Creative Use of Color

BC Place Stadium, Vancouver

As part of a $563 million renovation, Lumenfacade Color Changing fixtures are mounted on the steel beams supporting the translucent façade material to create an ethereal scrim of color around the stadium, while Lumenbeam Color Changing luminaires are mounted on the masts to bathe the roof in colored light.

When sports teams are in the house Lumenpulse's products light the stadium with the signature colors of each team, building team spirit inside and allowing people outside to see who's playing. Other light shows feature gradual-moving abstract designs on the façade with fixed roof colors and dynamic shows designed to involve the crowd at key moments like when a goal is scored, or when the audience participates in "The Wave."

The results are dazzling, distinctive and interactive but are reserved for special events to respect neighboring office buildings and nearby apartments.

Judge's comments:

"Impressive use of color in a great retrofit project that helps create a new night-time presence in the city."
