Muhammed Ali Cultural Center
City of Louisville, Kentucky
Working with EDAW and artist Athena Tacha, this plaza was created to provide an open gathering space next to the recently completed cultural center. The fountain sources at a glass waterwall and cascades down the amphitheater steps over LED illuminated weirs and terminates in a star shaped pool at the base. The 48 sculptural glass columns have water flowing through them and provide a dynamic lighting event at night with individual LED fixtures under each column.
