Electronic Tree in Brussels

After many years of installing a natural Christmas tree in the main public square of Brussels, Belgium, the tree this year is artificial, abstract, and electronic.  

An enormous abstract Christmas tree has been unveiled at the center of Brussels, though some are displeased with the city's modern take on holiday tradition. Created by French collective 1024 Architecture, the "Abies Electronicus" is an 82-foot steel-ribbed installation that replaces the real pine tree typically on display at the city's central square. Every night, the structure comes to life with a light and sound show, replete with shimmering lights, glowing cubes, and a mix of both holiday and industrial music. And unlike traditional trees, visitors can actually climb to the top of the Abies Electronicus for a panoramic view of the city.

Some citizens are not pleased with the structure, preferring a traditional tree. You can see a video of the tree changing colors. Link -via Buzzfeed
