The Adler Arena Trade and Exhibition Center is an 8.000 seat speed skating oval in the Olympic Park, Sochi, Russia. A crystal face theme is supported by angular walls and triangular stained-glass windows. The gray and white color of the building enhances this impression. The walls along the sides of the skating rink are made transparent so that spectators can look outside. The skating center is designed to make the utmost use of local natural features.
For this object, Nova-lux was in charge of a dynamic facade lighting simulation on 3D computer model – an animation movie. The light effect is created from within the object, behind the transparent structure, creating a warm and dynamic atmosphere in the stadium, as a contrast to neutral white light on the white structure of the rest of the structure.
Arena Adler opened in 2012 and hosting various speed skating events.
