Millenium Tower Interactive Model


In November, 2007 Urban Visuals developed a custom control system for an architectural model of a 60 story tower being built in San Fransisco. The Millenium Tower sales centre featured a tower nearly 7 feet tall with individual LED lights for each of its 400 suites. Additional rear projection panels hung from the ceiling afforded displayed 360 degree views from each of the the floors of the building.

The installation was controlled by a touch screen PC which communicated via Processing (processing.org) and custom built hardware to interface with the 800 wires exiting the base of the model. It was programmed to illuminate an individual suite, a whole floor, and whole sections of the building — the building is divided into three product offerings.
