The ArcelorMittal Orbit, Stratford, East London, England, UK
The ArcelorMittal Orbit is the first public artwork by Anish Kapoor to be lit. Arup’s lighting team has worked closely with Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond to create a lighting scheme that will highlight the sculpture’s complex geometric form.
The feature lighting scheme encourages visitors into the Park and the Olympic Park Landmark by creating a “must see” element to the sculpture at night. The scheme will play an integral part in the lighting and atmosphere of the Olympic Games with the sculpture lit up in a variety of modes for different events and times of day.
Beyond the Olympic Games, visitors will also experience the metaphor of an orbit after dark; using light to unravel the sculpture’s convoluted form and to grasp its dynamic shape. Arup Lighting Director Florence Lam refers to their approach as using “dark light”.
Sustainability has been a critical factor in Arup’s thinking. Arup Lighting’s choice of saturated red LED (light emitting diode) lighting accentuates the bespoke red specified by Kapoor for the sculpture.

Naples Subway Building
The brief from the City of Naples, to create a fully-functioning tube station that is in itself a work of art, demands a synthesis of purpose and beauty that is fundamental to our creative process. A second primary point of inspiration is the site. At the surface the station will be the central element in the urban and cultural regeneration of the Traiano district that has suffered in its recent history from infrastructural isolation and neglect.
