The iconic MLC Centre, Sidney, installs DTS projectors after restoration works

The MLC Centre, rising 67 floors above Martin Place in Sydney, Australia, was designed by renowned Australia Architect Harry Seidler. The MLC Centre has become an iconic Sydney landmark since the building – ahead of its time in its design – was opened in 1976. Today, the complex – jointly owned by The GPT Group and Queensland Investment Corporation – includes a major commercial office tower, a retail precinct, and the Theatre Royal. The building over recent years has suffered from external degradation and a project worth 300 million dollars was undertaken to fix it. The building owners approached Australian Artist Mathew Johnson to create a light art installation on the scaffolding, gantry and a joining buildings. DTS Australia provided Mathew with a lighting design, cabling and control solution. A range of DTS LED projectors – including DELTA 8 B, FOS POWER bars, TITAN PLUS, and DIVE 9R – were permanently installed to light the ‘Drum’ Tower, and temporarily to light the scaffolding.
Installation runs 365 days a year from 5:30pm until midnight.
