Robe and Anolis feature in LED installation at Tecnópolis, Argentina

LIghting from Robe and Anolis illuminates the venue hosting Tecnópolis, a science, technology, industry and art exhibition at the Parque del Bicentenario in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

A Robe and Anolis environmental lighting solution was chosen by the Argentinian government to permanently illuminate the venue hosting Tecnópolis, a science, technology, industry and art exhibition at the Parque del Bicentenario (Bicentenary Park), in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
 The annual Tecnópolis exhibition runs for three months and is focused on new technologies, techniques and advances to stimulate creativity. Buenos Aires-based lighting design and service company Pampin Luces designed the ornamental, environmental and landscape lighting scheme, which is based on a different concept each year.The lighting project encompasses the common and public spaces, squares and walking halls, and Pampin Luces has also permanently lit the foyer, façade and main hall of the exhibition venue – which is around 500 metres wide and 18 metres in height.
 Lighting equipment includes 36 Robe LEDWash 1200s, 30 LEDWash 600s, 20 Actor 6s and eight MMX Spots all from Robe’s Robin series, plus 120 LEDForce PAR 18s, four CitySkape Xtremes, 40 CityFlex 48s and 20 Anolis ArcPad 94 outdoor LED fixtures, complete with four Robe Haze machines.
 For the façade, halls and an area called Araucaria they used 80 of the LEDForce PAR 18s, 14 Actor 6s, 28 LEDWash 600s and six CitySkape Xtremes together with the 20 ArcPad 94s.
 Lighting in the enormous venue’s foyer has LEDForce PAR 18 units at its core which are used as up-lights. The LEDWash 600s are utilised to light the doors – housed in a series of glass boxes – and the remaining Actor 6s are located in the main hall and used for additional dynamics around the space. 
 Some equipment is set up in the 5,000 capacity Micro stadium, including 24 LEDWash 1200s, the eight MMX Spots and several CityFlex 48s, together with the Robe Haze machines and other conventional and moving lights.
 In other areas of the park, 40 CityFlex 48s are used for colour and effects. This very flexible LED device can be used outdoors and is easily adaptable in format so it can fit the designer’s exact requirements.
 This is also the first formal incorporation of LED technology to Pampin Luces’ work, and lighting designer and CEO, Edi Pampin, comments: “All around the venue, Robe luminaires highlight and emphasise the architecture, and are used to produce a wide range of effects and plenty of dynamics, especially to the façade which can be seen from afar.”
