Paolo Soleri Amphitheater

After renovating the venues “House Stage Lights”, I then designed and built a ground supported portable truss concert lighting system specifically for this venue; an intimate 1500 seat outdoor amphitheater on the grounds of the Santa Fe Indian School. This open-air amphitheater was designed by famed Italian architect, Paolo Soleri. Soleri is known for preformed and poured concrete with the concrete forms texture as part of the design (he designed the port authority bus station at the New York side of the George Washington Bridge) he is the founder and principal architect for his community built in the Arizona, high desert. Called Arcosanti it is an urban laboratory for alternative human habitat.
He based his design of the Paolo Soleri Amphitheater on ancient Greek amphitheaters. It has a thrust stage which is elliptical (not easy to light). As a result of the uniqueness of this stage shape, and size, regular rock and roll concert lighting rigs did not fit this venue. There were no “overhead” hanging places for lighting. My system became the “house concert lighting rig”.
