Glitter and sold: Retail space twinkles

30.11.2009 City : Light Futures : Singapore

Singapore – Brightening up the urban landscape, an entertainment complex in the vibrant Bugis district incorporates an interactive media façade that acts as a canvas for media artists.

Designed by Singapore-based studio WOHA, the Iluma shopping centre houses retail, entertainment and leisure facilities. The undulating façade is composed of faceted jewel-like fixtures that glitter in the day and glow in the night so that the building remains alive while the city sleeps.

Enabling creatives to make brilliant city-scaled interventions in light and sound, the Iluma demonstrates how a Light Futures approach can enliven the retail experience.
