For the Amandolier building in Geneva, UNSTATIC was commissioned to create the control software to drive the digital façade designed by Lighting Design Collective.
The content is scheduled seasonally, and the client controls the building lighting in real-time using a web interface.
A reconception of an iconic media façade takes place when daylight fades. The real-time data integration communicates a unique artistic expression emerging in soothing natural flows of light and powerful geometries enticed from the architectural background.
The building is a minimalistic cube. A glass skin in dialogue with the surroundings, responds to the fluctuations in the light conditions inside and outside.
It is transparent during the day, but also reflects the pulsing pace of the city and the ever-shifting sky. Repeated geometry results in a blank canvas for lighting, giving a sense of order. The grid modules can group in segments or floors playing with the perceived scale of the building.
