University of Kentucky – Commonwealth Stadium

Home of the Wildcats, Commonwealth Stadium at the University of Kentucky was reinvented through a two year, $120-million project that included lighting design as a key element in creating a dramatic experience.

Flanking the entrance of the owners clubs, visitors were drawn in by sparkles of Kentucky blue on textured thematic walls. Encircling the stadium were twelve twenty-foot pylons, each labeled with the seating number animated with a comet tail of light. Smooth animation guide fans to their seats from several hundred feet away.

As visitors entered the stadium, alumni players surround them in animated lenticular light boxes.
