The Hoberman Arch, a semicircular aluminum structure backed with translucent panels, brilliantly illuminated the Olympic Medals Plaza at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. Towering over the stage at 35′ tall and 70′ in diameter, the retracting geodesic structure opened the nightly medals ceremony. The main beam in each of the 96 moving panels was a 6061-T6 extruded square tube with a 4"x 4" x 1/4" wall section.
