A brand new building to house the National Library of Belarus. The twenty-three storey library is designed in the form of a rhombicuboctahedron (diamond) and symbolizes the enormous value of knowledge that mankind has stored in books. “The authors suggested hiding the light sources behind the glass to create an illusion of a giant color display,” continues Kramarenko. “A total of 4646 color-changing LED fixtures were installed all around the building, effectively creating a monitor with 25×25 meter sides and 62 meters in diameter.
“As a result, spectators are able to observe a fantastic show with incredible dynamic plots from hundreds of meters away. It is an extraordinary creative venue for lighting designers.”
“This world class project helped to demonstrate our capability to design and manufacture complex single or multi-color LED systems,” says Vladimir Grigorik, president of GVA Lighting. “Our engineers have invented a number of unique engineering innovations and gained a tremendous experience and know-how in deployment of large scale LED systems. We are looking forward to new and exciting challenges from architects and lighting designers around the world.”
