Martin lights Danish School of Engineering
24 September 2012
Denmark - The Aarhus University School of Engineering in Denmark recently moved to the city district of Katrinebjerg, the centre of information technology in Aarhus, and sought to announce its new domicile by dynamically illuminating panes of laminated glass on the building's façade.
Using Martin Professional LED strip lights to backlight 24 panes of glass that operate as sun shades, the building - designed by architectural firm CF M°ller A/S - now radiates in a wash of eye-catching colour that has announced the Engineering School's arrival as a dynamic, new member of the neighbourhood.
The glass panes consist of two layers of 6mm tempered glass with yellow foil between. The panes, 40cm wide x 8m long and divided into four sections, are illuminated from the back by the IP67-rated RGB strip lights, thereby making the foil 'glow'.
Control of the lighting system is via a Martin software-based M-PC controller, which allows for programming and simple control of a series of custom light scenes.
Martin Professional's Aarhus-based R&D Department has enjoyed a long-standing cooperation with the School. This project, including lighting design, however, was completed in cooperation with Martin Professional Scandinavia.
The client is reportedly happy and satisfied with the result, a dynamic lighting solution that students have also found useful in their daily studies.
