Overview

Arena Calcetto is an interactive installation of?five sculptural towers housing bespoke fussball tables. Direct from the 2012 Venice International Biennale of Architecture, the installation invites audiences to meet, play and compete on a truly unique table.

Arup proposed to a two layered approach to uplight the underside of the perforated fussball tables with warm white light and to compliment this with red light aimed at the peak of each tower. The reservoir is sunken below the street level and as such it was decided to give a warm feel to the tables at human level, supported by the glowing red tips of the 10m high towers attracting attention and interest at street level where they can be clearly seen as you traverse Oxford Street.
