Philips Lighting Program, 3rd Place

Philips Lighting made a competition to design the facade of the School of Architecture building by using different types of projectors, lamps.

I won the 3rd place by designing and interact facade using 3 different light colors (RGB) to make possible that people can make their own colorful shadows at the facade. On the other hand, there was going to be a facebook fan page where people can change the school logo lighting by clicking on Like.
