PIFA Video Cube

Location: Philadelphia, PA

USA engineered, fabricated and installed this eight-foot, outdoor, LED cube display. The Video Cube was originally conceived to kick-off the first Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA), and remains a permanent fixture at the corner of Broad and Spruce Streets. Our scope of work included management, design, engineering, fabrication, powder coated steel framework, integration of the LED display components, testing, rigging and installation.

Our favorite part of the project was planning our installation process to start bright and early at 3am on a Saturday morning to keep our impact light on downtown Philadelphia traffic, and also getting to see our creation every time we drive down Broad Street!


The team at USA worked diligently to coordinate the work of the Cube designers, the integration of the electronics, and fabrication of the steel components, all on a very tight time table and under strict budget parameters.USA
