Lahz Nimmo Architects engaged Lighting, Art & Science to design the lighting for the international standard skate ramp at Sydney Olympic Park.
The lighting design needed to uniformly light the horizontal and vertical surfaces from the aspect of the skater and the spectator with minimum of glare while placing the poles so that they did not represent an obstruction for the skaters.
The lighting design used a combination of wide distribution metal halide floodlights with some narrow beam floodlights to fill in the difficult corners. The poles were attached to the ramp structure so that the whole installation was demountable.
