National Stadium Warsaw

 Back to Projects list
Address
Aleja Księcia Józefa Poniatowskiego 1, 03-901 Warsaw, Poland
Year
2012

The stadium in Warsaw is located on the site of the former 10th –Anniversary Stadium on al. Zieleniecka in Praga Poludnie district, near the city center. The design team’s main brief was to transform the new landmark building at the centre of Warsaw at night time. The main idea was to use the whole facade as a static landmark or a low resolution screen. The illumination transforms the facade material, so the lighting effect is extraordinary, emphasizes the rhythm of the facade architecture and closes visually the translucent metal mesh facade panels at night. Based on pre-programmed scenes, moods from within the stadium can be projected onto the facade. Five dynamic lighting scenes (e.g. starry sky, La Ola wave, scores, dynamic encircling lettering) and three static ones have been pre-programmed for the exterior facade.
