Dynamic quality, technology and passion

The Olympic Games in London once again showed that lighting design is as important for the success of a sports event as the event itself. Since the facade design for the football stadium in Munich hit the headlines – and the TV screens– it was pretty clear that light can communicate what is going on inside the arena to the world outside. The new facade on the National Stadium in Lima, Peru takes this a step further and displays the mood of the spectators watching their team(s)on the pitch … Again it is LED technology and lighting controls that make this possible. Dynamic quality, technology and passion – expressed in light.
In many cities the football stadium is a dominant structure and the site of the largest public gatherings. When Peru decided to undertake a major refurbishment of their National Stadium, they seized the opportunity to extend the size of the stadium and install a new façade. A multidisciplinary team of experienced designers and engineers was appointed to deliver the custom lighting design for the new facade. The new lighting on the façade of the National Stadium of Peru is a world first for its unique concept and its innovative use of advanced technologies. In March 2009 the Peruvian Institute of Sports (IPD)presented a concept developed by Jose Bentín Diez Canseco to redesign the Estadio Nacional. This move tied in with a bid to host the 2015Pan-American Games. The idea was to give the stadium a modern and outstan-ding image, while preserving original elements, such as the tower and the sports laurels. The concept comprised wrap-ping the stadium in sheets of perforated steel. The new façade was to be anchored to the stadium structure, and generate the look of a sweeping skin with a geosynthetic coating, taller even than the stands. The capacity of the stadium was modified to hold 45,000 people and new facilities were added such as evacuation stairs, elevators, and access spaces to the higher levels where the VIP stalls, cafeteria and press rooms are located.
In approaching the lighting design for the National Stadium in Lima, the design team was conscious of the need for an iconic design that would match the passion and pride of football spectators and the city at large. The goal was to use lighting to establish a visual connection between the fans, their passion, the game, and the surrounding cityscape. […]
