From the Miss604 Flickr Pool: BC Place Light Displays

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s been just over a year since the renovated and refurbished BC Place was unveiled. Aside from an entirely new roof, new seats, and seismic upgrades, the 36-foot tall Northern Lights Display was added in a ring around the stadium.

Made up of 170 ETFE panels, stacked 4 rows heigh, and spanning 6,800 linear feet, the display uses LED lights to display a customizable pattern or colour. It’s been orange for Halloween, pink for breast cancer awareness, poppy red for Remembrance Day, and most recently it flew the colours of the Union Jack in honor of Sir Paul McCartney’s concert last weekend.

I have decided to post a themed installment of the “From the Miss604 Flickr Pool” photo series to showcase the colours of BC Place.
