LED Clouds in Amsterdam by Sophie Valla
Sophie Valla Architects has refurbished two abandoned gas stations in Amsterdam North. New light installations turned the derelict building into colorful structure, creating an instant landmark for both drivers on the highway and the Noorderpark crowd.
Sixty textile panels were backlit to form an LED artificial sky measuring 10 by 40 meters. Dynamic light animations mimic shifting cloudy Dutch skies. Twenty fluctuating skies lead us through bright and stormy days from sunrise to sunset. The project was completed for their client Amsterdam North City.
