Three Luminous Bodies, Station Beacons

Third and Jefferson, Ball Park at Third and Washington and Symphony Hall Stations

Phoenix, Arizona

2009

Description

As an invitation to the cultural heart of Phoenix, three large sculptural lights enliven the station platforms of Third and Jefferson at the Ball Park and of Third and Washington at the Symphony Hall. These welcome beacons were commissioned by Valley Metro for the new light rail system coinciding with the expansion of cultural venues in downtown Phoenix. Contributing to urban wayfinding and illuminated with LED lights, the lights offer stations users a changing light show.
