Architect: Kiyoshi Kurokawa
The Yahagi River runs through the center of the city and along its banks is Toyota Stadium, which opened in June 2001. The stadium was designed by architect Kiyoshi Kurokawa to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the city’s founding. The 45,000 capacity stadium consists of six stories - two underground and four above - and is packed full of amenities: natural turf football field with retractable roof, movable full–color screen, restaurant, party room, and an indoor sports space that includes a swimming pool. Surrounding the stadium is a large open area, Toyota City Central Park, with a magnificent view of the modern Toyota Bridge.
Exterior 600/200 colors
Two 575-watt Exterior 600 fixtures with 12o lenses illuminate the top of each mast. Remarkably bright for such a long throw, the effective lighting distance was increased through the use of the narrow optical lens. Two Exterior 600’s with variable 22-38o lenses light the main body of each mast and one Exterior 600 with a 22-38o lens lights the bottom section of the pillars, beneath the roof. In order to bathe a wider area evenly, they are programmed at 38 degrees.
Two 150-watt Exterior 200 color changing lights with 60o lenses light the bottom section of each mast and one Exterior 200 with a 60o lens lights above and below the roof. The 60o lens allows for a wide throw flood beam.
Following the concept “To Link the Whole Globe,” the stadium turns a lovely emerald blue as the Toyota Bridge changes color close by. The lighting is designed to link the entire city in a unifying visual look. Every hour on the hour, the stadium, bridge and the city’s main street all display a harmonious, congruous color pattern. Furthermore, a variety of effects are programmed to match special events. For example, when local soccer team Grampus Eight takes the pitch, the whole city metamorphosis into the team color – red – in a lighting design strongly committed to the heart of the people.
