Genoa Park Stairs

Columbus, Ohio
United States

Located on the banks of the Scioto River and directly across from another of HLB’s Columbus waterfront projects, Bicentennial Park, the Genoa Park Stairs create a playful presence on the city’s skyline, engaging and enticing locals and tourists alike. Envisioned as a central nighttime element of this riverfront park, the Genoa Park Stairs transforms an existing concrete amphitheater into a dramatic and experiential nighttime lighting event.

Utilizing highly controlled and customized wall grazer luminaires, the concrete risers are transformed into a dynamic display screen while maintaining tight glare control for visitor comfort. The installation performs an array of both static and kinetic scenes that celebrate the seasons, holidays, and major community events. This dynamic nighttime landmark engages the public and provides a visual representation of the community’s pride in their city.
