The Rundle Lantern

As Adelaide’s new cultural canvas, The Rundle Lantern is a spectacular and invigorating creation attracting residents and visitors alike.

Attached to the Adelaide City Council’s Rundle Street UPark at the Rundle and Pulteney Street intersection, The Rundle Lantern covers almost 40% of the building. The nine storey Lantern covers an area of 1,066 square metres and is made up of 748 square panels activated by an LED (light emitting diode) system.

The Lantern operates every night from dusk till midnight, and later for special events.

The Lantern is driven by computer software at night, showcasing colourful and dynamic imagery. During the day it is a unique and contemporary architectural structure.

The Rundle Lantern is 100% green powered and the light show is carbon neutral. The Lantern’s LEDs use 90% less energy and the lifespan is 100 times that of a conventional bulb. The angled paneling provides ventilation throughout the floors of the UPark building.

South Australian innovators Fusion, BB Architects and Russell Group worked on the estimated $2 million project with the Adelaide City Council.

For nearly 150 years, Adelaide Oval has been regarded as one of the most picturesque sporting grounds in the world. It is a South Australian icon, and one of the most advanced, state-of-the-art outdoor venues in Australia.
