After making a stop in Berlin at the 48h Neukölln Festival in June and in Riga at the Waterpieces Festival as part of the program ”City as context”, the Screen City Tour has been reaching Ceresole Reale. For this place in the mountains we have chosen to show "Borders and Migration" and the video "Evighetens Avkom" creating a confrontation between a wild panorama of remote landscapes and the theme of migration. See the photos of the Vernissage in the woods!

Poetic interactive L.E.D mesh structures
The Habitat Hotel is a working scale model of a hotel in Barcelona, by Cloud 9 Architecture . The 'energy mesh' wrapped around it has individual nodes that collect the sun's energy during the day and at night gives off a specific color according to the amount of energy collected. The model's mesh consists of 500 tri-color LEDs controlled by a PIC microprocessor. (via pixelsumo)
Achim Wollscheid's projects redlighthaze and intersite work with a mesh of LED lights covering the facade, recting to the sonic cityscape.

At nighttime the whole first floor of the Raiffeisen Bank in Hollabrunn near Vienna becomes a digital LED screen running the bank's branding and promotions, or any other effect or animation. A light sensor turns the system on and off automatically, according to light levels. LEDs magazine describes the detailed construction and technique.

Who is the Architect of this media facade?
Does anybody know who the architect is?
This architectural and media concept study meets the challenge of narrow building gaps overcoming the lighting problem by using illuminated ceilings â€“ LEDs behind opaque glass. Connected to a sensory system, the ceilings react to movement below them. Inhabitants can also control the lighting in accordance to their moods.

quietrevolution display tourbines combine wind energy with LED displays:
"QR is available in a model capable of creating a visual display that is part artwork, part renewable energy device, part communications medium. LEDs embedded in each of its three S-shaped blades fire in sequence as the blades rotate, painting a video screen that appears to hang in the air. This full colour and motion image is clearly visible day and night."

The harbingers of the media city are cropping up everywhere: projected images the size of an entire faĂ§ade, huge screens on roof tops and culture buildings used as flickering display surfaces. Developments in the area of display technologies have produced new possibilities for hybrid architecture. The theme of media facades in architecture is not simply the next fashion trend, but represents a step in technological development that will have a lasting impact. This trend will affect the city â€“ with or without architects' collaboration. Therefore the important thing is to assume social responsibility and to integrate the new technologies in building in a culturally ambitious way. For an Austrian architecture scene that likes to experiment the potential of such developments is a highly topical question....
