Dexia Tower in Brussels: 38 Floor + 150,000 LEDs = One Awesome Building!

Patrick of Creative Review blog went to Brussels and told us about the highlight of his trip: a 38-floor Dexia Tower. With 150,000 LEDs on its exterior walls, which means only one thing: one heckuva light show!

Dexia, a bank, opened its Tower, next to the Rogier Metro station at the end of one of the city’s main thoroughfares, last year. [...]

The current show is on the theme of weather. As explained on LAb[au]’s site, “The project displays tomorrow’s temperature, cloudiness, precipitations, and wind, by using colors and geometrical patterns to visualise these data. A color-code corresponds to tomorrow’s temperature compared to the monthly average, linked to a scale of color-temperatures ranging from violet (-6° or colder), blue (-4°), cyan (-2°), green (monthly average), yellow (+2°), orange (+4°) to red (+6° or warmer)” (with embedded YouTube clip showing the lightshow) - Thanks Patrick!
