The Largest LED Architecture Project in The World: Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi

You probably got used to articles on Freshome that feature things like ‘amazing architecture ideas” , “world’s largest…” and so on. We know you like seeing brilliant and unusual constructions here and we will try to keep offering them to you. Designed by Asymptote Architecture and with a lighting arrangement done by Arup Lighting, today’s project is located in Abu Dhabi and is called “The Yas Hotel“. It is momentarily the world’s largest LED building and it was opened on November 3, 2009 in the same time with the Formula 1 Grand Prix. The hotel is controlled through remote device management (RDM) protocol and it has no less than 5000 RGBW LED items. It also features functions such as color-changing sequences and other impressive lighting effects. Still, one has to think how much energy this type of building consumes, in spite of its absorbing and almost intimidating design. -via
