To illuminate the glazed rhizolites of the mall we proposed two possible options. The first one is flood frontal lighting from the outside of the mall’s supports. But it did not fit due to the lack of normal supports, and most importantly, the inability to put them. The second option is to illuminate the entire structure from the inside with luminaries to create volumetric lighting, a some sort of aquarium of light. Convenient maintenance and quick installation have become a huge advantage of this option.
The entire facade is controlled pixel by pixel using the MADRIX software, which allows user to create various color dynamic solutions. To achieve the desired effect, field modeling was also carried out. Effects that described and presented on a computer screen often do not look so impressive on the object itself. Knowing this, we initially slowed down the speed of the lighting scenarios, but were able to achieve the desired image. Lighting provides the following scenarios for the equipment: regular static and slightly dynamic scenarios for each day, scenarios for the New Year holidays, for public holidays and big events.
In addition, the scripts are programmed to automatically change the seasons: winter, spring, summer, autumn. Besides, IntiDOT system can be used independently, both in this project, and in conjunction with other DMX-controlled devices, for example, together with spotlights or linear luminaries. The system consists of individual points of high brightness with various configurations that allow it to create a unique technical solution for each specific case, including use for building media facades.
