101 Collins | Light Show
MELBOURNE CBD'S night skyline has been enhanced by a new light show.
The luminous display on 101 Collins St will provide a spectacle every night of the year. The light show is capable of displaying 16 million different colours from 700m of LED - from the 43rd floor to the 260m-high pinnacle.
Located within the 'Paris end' of Collins Street, 101 Collins Street is widely recognised as Melbourne's premier office address.
In recognising its status and presence on the skyline, 101 Collins Street will be providing a dazzling new lighting show on the Melbourne skyline every night.
This will be achieved via 700m of linear LED - capable of displaying 16 million different colours - extending from the building's 43rd floor to the top of the 260-metre high spires.
Citing the likes of global landmarks such as the Empire State building and the Eiffel Tower, as sources of inspiration, AXA Investment Managers have commissioned an installation which features curated displays designed to reflect changes in season, in addition to major cultural and sporting events, such as the Grand Prix, AFL Grand Final, and the Melbourne Cup.
The display was officially launched on Wednesday night (24 October 2018) with a lighting display specifically designed to commemorate the occasion. Daily programmed lighting displays will commence at sunset, transitioning through a variety of hourly scenes before finishing with a 'moonset' show at midnight.
'We wanted to build on 101's iconic status by creating something that engages with not only our tenants, but with the broader Melbourne community. While 101 Collins is synonymous with Melbourne's corporate strength, projects like this help bring together the built environment with the creative culture that really defines this city. AXA IM is consistently innovating with new initiatives at 101 Collins Street to ensure the building remains a leader in Melbourne's fiercely competitive commercial market.' - Brett Dillon, Head of Funds Management at AXA Investment Managers
The show's RGB LED lighting technology uses a Pharos control system, making it up to 50 per cent more energy efficient than the energy source its replacing. Designed by renowned engineering firm ARUP, the show uses a 3D canvas for displaying layered content on the building's different surfaces. To ensure the original architecture of 101 Collins Street is respected, the lighting fixtures will be unnoticeable during the day.
