The new Ars Electronica Center in Linz is an ambitious architectural undertaking that went up in record time. A multilevel structure was built immediately adjacent to the existing facility. Subsequently the entire ensemble was wrapped in a glass shell: the AEC’s spectacular 5.100 m LED facade which consists of 1085 windows colored red, green, blue and white in size of 3x1 meters. The LED lights are attached in groups to the building‘s facade (horizontal and vertical). The colors and intensity of the lights can be changed group by group (RGB based colors). The media facade can be operated by a ‘Simulator’.
