Auditorio Citibanamex is a live music venue in Monterrey, Mexico, and one of the country’s top concert venues. It recently received a beautiful outdoor wash of color courtesy of Adimsa, one of Mexico’s leading lighting providers. Adimsa installed weatherproof Elation SixPar series luminaires, including 180 SixPar 300 IP™, 24 SixPar 100 IP™ and 12 SixBar 1000 IP™ LED color changers on the project. Lighting design was by Edson Rivera of Adimsa with lighting programming by Victor Rivera.
The first challenge to overcome was delivery time – supply and installation had to happen in a short four-week period, which was a demanding requirement for an installation of this magnitude. Then during the installation itself, it rained for two weeks, which made work more difficult for the installation team but didn’t hamper the IP65 rated luminaires one bit. The result was worth the effort as the venue glows in a stunning wash of shades that complement the architectural form of the building. The client chose a variety of color schemes and can customize the outdoor dress of light to coincide with the performance or event happening inside.
