888 Collins Street, Melbourne, installed a real-time weather display device on the facade of the building, and LED linear lights covered the entire 35m high building. And this weather display device is not the kind of electronic big screen we usually see, it is a public art of lighting design combining low-resolution digital screen and architectural lighting.
At 888 Collins Street, Melbourne, a real-time weather display device was installed on the facade of the building, and LED linear lights covered the entire 35m high building. And this weather display device is not the kind of electronic big screen we usually see, it is a public art of lighting design combining low-resolution digital screen and architectural lighting.
At present, the facade lighting at 888 Collins Street in Melbourne is the largest facade lighting in Australia and even the entire southern hemisphere. The total length of 348,920 LED lights is 2.5km and the total area is 5500 square meters.
When you look over from a distance, you can see a series of abstract visual weather information, displayed in real-time for 5 minutes per hour, telling the passing pedestrians the next weather changes.
The combination of lighting and architecture at 888 Collins Avenue is so perfect. This result is due to the close cooperation with the architectural firm LendLease and the lighting design firm Ramus. The lighting design is carried out simultaneously with the building design, and the lighting is integrated with the architectural shape. The lighting designer has long been confident about the location of the lamp installation and the direction of the circuit.
The LED light strips are fixed in the specially reserved light trough on the outer wall of the building. The depth of the light trough has been designed in advance to control the angle and intensity of the light. The viewing angle is limited to avoid glare, which will affect the apartment and surrounding areas.
The entire project went smoothly with the cooperation of all parties. The architect and the lighting designer communicated in a timely manner. Under the premise that the architectural shape has been novel and eye-catching, the lighting effect is the icing on the cake for the entire building.
People’s pursuit of interaction between people and things is getting higher and higher, and there are more and more building facades that combine art and functionality.
