The IFC Guangzhou with a height of 487 m ranks amongst the highest buildings on earth. A solution for the presentation of the façade was developed with which you can see the characteristic, diagonal structure of the framework behind the glass façade even at night. Because the tower is mainly used for office and hospitality, the lighting needed to be easy to maintain from the outside and must not shine into the interior. The solution are integrated façade elements with LED that can illuminate the building dynamically and colourful. The standard setting though is monochrome and static light scenes to underline the architecture of the building.
