Skilled Stadium at Kardinia Park is the home of Geelong’s AFL Club. As part of the redevelopment of the stadium, a new pedestrian area was created from an existing car park to showcase Geelong’s sporting legends.

Sculptural elements are the centrepiece of Legends Plaza, which includes an exposed aggregate coloured concrete pavement with large concrete obelisk sculptural elements, by the sculptor Mark Stoner. The sculptures are arranged in a serpentine line creating inferred rooms to house the ethereal looking glass panels with legend graphics.

At the time (2008) the technology for the glass panels was new. Working with a specialist glass company we were able to create two metre panels of glass with a graphic interlay to create life size images of legends.
