    Dexia Towers Rainbow LEDs / lab-au

    Designed by lab-au - Brussels, Belgium





    Measuring 145 metres from top to bottom and counting 38 floors, Dexia Tower is the third highest building in Brussels, Belgium. In the middle of the Rogier Square the building shines like a beacon over the town. The Tower is visible from several major traffic arteries in the capital and is situated precisely in the middle of the Mint Square – North Station axis.





    It has a trapezium-shaped footprint covering an area of 4,400 square metres
    Designed by lab-au, the installation uses a dozen LEDs in each window, making the whole building look like a big Lite Brite canvas. The temperature is shown based on the monthly average and a different color represents each increase or decrease. There also apparently is some color code for depicting humidity, wind speed and precipitation, but it beats us.





    According to the Dexia Towers website, the lighting of the weather forecast lights has been drastically reduced due to the economic and financial conditions. Between sunset and midnight, the lights will only illuminate for 10 minutes per hour. Well, we guess that takes care of that.









    Greetings

    The city is created under emergency conditions: On the one hand, the obligation to update its infrastructures and, on the other hand, the need to maintain the same standards as in other cities, both of which require the continuous incorporation of new technologies to public spaces. If the now rare telephone booths were an example of this modernising in their day, today’s urban screens are so now. Once the economic factors were overcome, they were implemented all over the city following confused criteria linked to business performance and inertia inherited from previous examples, such as in Times Square in New York. These trends have led non-commercial display devices to become a rare exception within the city’s digitalisation process. Apart from informative electronic signs, these experiences have been uncommon and always reduced to a temporary scale. This situation shows that although some private companies are interested in them as a support for their advertising purposes, few institutions have been able to profit from their ability to activate public spaces or their capacity to create local identity and identify open processes in the city.



    The digital façade of the Plaza de las Letras is the result of a commission from the Arts Area of the Madrid Town Council to provide the Medialab-Prado Centre with one of those non-commercial systems as a laboratory to make visible its researches regardin art, public spaces and new technologies. The new façade aims to become a virtual space for exchange and communication with both visitors and locals. It is an infrastructure designed as an active support capable of promoting social responsibility, information transmission, social interaction and play-oriented experiences.



    The Led Action Façade system is a model patented to produce large-format digital façades. The device consists of a regular matrix of nodes of RGB leds implemented by means of aluminium cones, the section of which has been designed to reflect the beam of light of emission sources and to improve the screen’s viewing. The application of the Led Action Façade in the staggered party wall of the old Serrer*a Belga, the future headquarters of the Medialab-Prado Centre, involves the creation of a viewing device covering 144m2 and made up by some 35,000 nodes.



    The system has allowed the configuration of a digital support of irregular geometry that is easily adaptable and has been prepared for the emission of both fixed and moving average resolution images. On the contrary, when the system is switched off, the set of cones and nodes become a vibrant surface activated by natural light that makes it look less similar to conventional urban screens and become a characteristic feature of the party wall.

    Moodwall / Studio Klink and Urban Alliance
    by Urban Alliance (in collaboration with Daan Hartoog)



    Media architecture collective Urban Alliance has recently finished the Moodwall: a 24 meter long interactive light installation in Amsterdam.

    The Moodwall is situated in a pedestrian tunnel and interacts with people passing by, improving the atmosphere in the tunnel and making people happy and feel less unsafe.





    The interactive urban wallpaper is built out of about 2500 leds behind a ribbed semi-transparent wall. The curves in the wall make it less suitable for grafitti and improve the visibility of the content for the side.



    The resolution is horizontally stretched so the images of the screen are better for the side so people are stimulated to watch the screen from outside the tunnel. This prevents the tunnel to become a hang-out spot.





    The Moodwall is a pilot project for a 70 meter long media wall proposal by Urban Alliance (in collaboration with Daan Hartoog) which won a competition for ideas to improve the public space of the social unsafe area of the Amsterdam Bijlmer.

    Urban Alliance is a collaboration of:

    Studio Klink (architecture and design)
    Illuminate (interactive lighting and video content)
    Cube (building and development)



    The Moodwall was designed by Jasper Klinkhamer (Studio Klink) in collaboration with Remco Wilcke (Cube), who was also responsible for the construction. The content was developed by Hans van Helden and Matthijs ten Berge of Illuminate in collaboration with artist Matthias Oostrik and students of the dutch art academy HKU.

    Hombre pues esta barvara la iluminacion, supongo que asi lucira tal cual en la inauguracion tras la renovacion o en algun partido importante.

    Tengo entendido que las luces led para estadios son mas potentes y mas caras, hacen lo comun que es mejorar significativamente la eficiencia, el área efectiva de iluminación y permite tener un amplio ángulo visual, pero algo que me parece interesante es el diseño modular q presentan, pues hacen mas fácil su instalación y desinstalación, y asu vez proporcionan protección de inducción de pulso electromagnético que son para los relámpagos (algo bueno), que son generalmente en esos casos cuando dsufren daños, pero bueno muy caro el uso de leds en los estadios eso habla muy bien del estadio nacional de Lima. Esperemos se complete tal y como se proyecta en el render para que nos cuelguen un video por aqui

    Un saludo
