AMP Olympic Torches

Client: AMP
Architect: Hamilton Thompson
Status: Complete

In the lead up to the 2000 Sydney Olympics, AMP acquired a series of 15 Olympic torches, the earliest being the torch from the 1936 Berlin Games.  In order to display this amazing collection in a fitting way, a bespoke glass and steel display case has been constructed in the foyer of their Circular Quay main office.  The design was the result of a close collaboration between the client, engineers, steel fabricators, glass fitters, screen printers and artists.  Given its type and scale, the project was more akin to product design - with a great deal of focus on the components and their details as observed from close range.
