Giant Vertical LED Wall Greets Visitors To Northwestern U’s New Athletic Center

August 22, 2018 by Dave Haynes


The lobby of the newly opened Walter Athletics Center at Northwestern University in Chicago has a giant vertical LED wall, as well as what looks like large tiled (and possibly interactive) flat-panel display walls to the sides. The facility, which opened August 1st, sits on the shores of Lake Michigan at the school’s Evanston campus.

I like the clever use of video – like a swimmer in a pool lane – that was shot and rendered with the format in mind.

Middle section of video shows the lobby:

The facility is part of a $270 million (yup, not a typo) athletics facilities upgrade project at the Division 1 school.
