Building’s Facade Displays A Real Time Playlist Of Its Dwellers’ Music Choices
Chinese architects visualize real-time website data with colorful LEDs.
Lists have always been the easiest way to see what other people are downloading, but A8 Music, a new Chinese music download company, wanted to try something completely different – reactive LEDs on the front of their building. Designed by Shenzhen-based UNIT Studio, the facade is a unique and creative new way to make the invisible visible.
The building is at it’s best during the night, when the building comes to life with the data taken from A8’s website. In place of LEDs, sound wave-shaped glass on the building’s exterior reflects the sky and surrounding buildings to create a similar effect during the day.
