Bold new installation welcomes GC2018

World-renowned architect studio LOT-EK will put the Gold Coast’s name in lights through two unique artworks at the city’s busiest entry points.

Announced by The Gateways Public Art Commission, New York-based design studio LOT-EK has been selected as the winning concept for a bold new light installation on the Gold Coast in Australia. The work, titled ‘HI-LIGHTS’ will feature nearly 100 modified highway light poles to form the iconic city’s name at the northern installation and the letters GC at the southern site.

We’re excited to be collaborating with LOT-EK and Office Feuerman in delivering the installation for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. Designed by  LOT-EK architects Giuseppe Lignano and Ada Tolla, the work will welcome visitors, locals and GC2018 athletes no matter their direction of travel and create a sense of arrival to the iconic City of Gold Coast.
