Interactive tower block

Belgian design and art studio Lab [au] are the creators behind this cool interactive illumination system that enlightened the 145 m high Dexia Tower in Brussels in 2007. Each of the 4200 windows were equipped with RGB LEDs that could be activated individually from the control station set up at the bottom of the tower.
The Touch installation allowed people to interact with the building in real time through a multi touch screen either individually or collectively. Touch and movement were translated into graphical elements playing off of the building's structure. the final result of each design session could be photographed and sent as an electronic postcard.

Check out their website, there are lots of other cool light and architecture projects.
