Project Location Cyprus
Entry DescriptionThis elliptical and organically conical glass and metal building is a destination venue and one-of-a-kind architectural marvel in Cyprus, designed for spacious open-air or indoor events. Its eye-catching exterior vertical sunshades create a layered and visually elaborate experience during the day and are transformed into a glowing icon at night.
Cypriot lighting designers Archtube conceived of a dynamic RGBW lighting plot that bring the Event Centre to life, creating scenes and evoking different moods and reactions depending on the use of the Event Centre on a given occasion.
The Event Centre is wrapped by a veil of vertical sun shade fins in 5 levels, each inclined progressively and slightly differently. There are 148 fins on each level. The lighting design intention was to illuminate a pair of fins by placing a single light fixture between them at the base of each level; requiring 740 light fixtures in total.
