Above is a rendering as to what the LED lit lamp post lighting will look like down Hamilton and Cambie Streets. The lights are part of the part of the Olympic public art installations program institued by the City of Vancouver, all of which will be permanent installations, except for the public art at VPL (see our previous post on the Vancouver City Hall ice lights installation here). The lights will link the two free “live sites” during the Olympics, one of which is in Yaletown at David Lam Park and the other downtown at Cambie and Georgia.
Artist Adrian Gollner has this to say about the art installation:
“The intention is to brighten the nights, add to the excitement of the games and make the City visually remarkable. Mounted to lampposts and utilizing the latest LED technology, the street lighting schemes will not only be beautiful, but also provide a sense of direction and place for visitors.”
