A medical school's new media wall shows that there's more than meets the eye.

Designed for the Weill Cornell Medical College, London-based multimedia agency Squint/Opera devised a custom-made, animated and programmable digital media wall. Featuring thousands of LCD screens and lenses that are able to project photos and text, the Discovery Wall highlights the college's many scientific discoveries over the years. The screens are set behind a panel of circular discs, and this dual layer construction turns the wall into a single image from a distance; however, up close each screen projects different information. “It's intended to both to tell the story of the research that's going on in the building as well as honor the donors who made the building and medical research possible,” said William Cunningham, Weill Cornell's campus architect.
