RGB color and ambient light sensors, light emitting wall (162 led light rails and 162 u-profile glasses)


RGB color and ambient light sensors detecting the incoming light from one point in the sky, are placed on top of the building, timed to work one at the time. A light emitting wall is translating the incoming data into temporally adjusting colors and brightnesses. During the day the light tunes to surrounding conditions, during the dark hours data recorded of each day runs in a shortened loop.

The illumination wall consists of sandblasted u-profile glasses and led light rails. It runs along the curved auditorium wall, facing toward the foyer space. It is located inside a auditorium volume that is enveloped with semitransparent glass and is situated above the main entrance of the hospital.

The work is realized in co-operation with White Arkitekter AB / Fredrik Mats Nilsson for Uppsala Akademiska Sjukhuset.
