Does not take place: ICONIC CITIES

Simon McCartney, illumination Physics Pty Ltd.

The skyline of a city significantly shapes its image. As icons, skyscrapers form the unmistakable silhouettes of the Sky Scraper Cities. In many places, skylines have become tourist attractions, as in Hong Kong, where thousands of people watch the Symphony of Lights every evening. 45 buildings are integrated into the 20-minute spectacle. Advertising clips and films of gigantic size run across the facades. The light show revolutionized the development of media facades worldwide. Today, new lighting technology is integrated directly into the buildings - huge media facades become monitors and fascinating eye-catchers, are in constant metamorphosis and create new light spaces. Architecture becomes a playing field for digitalization. Where is this development leading? Do we expect large-scale advertising campaigns on the envelopes of the buildings? What does a sustainable and responsible use of this technology look like?
