The world’s largest LED project has been recently completed in Abu Dhabi. Asymptote Architecture holds the credit for such a marvelous design and Arup holds the credit for lighting design. The project has been implemented on the Yas Hotel where the entire structure is covered with 5300 panels in diamond shape containing over 5000 LED fixtures. The lighting structure is such that color changing sequences of light can be displayed and the design is also capable of running three dimensional videos of low resolution.
The Yas Hotel has two buildings each with 12 storeys and has a neon canopy at the top that looks more like a Formula One race track. The hotel consists of 500 rooms spanning up to 85000 square meters and that is obvious that the blinking lights and cars would take away your sleep.
The use of LEDs is certainly remarkable and the design definitely owes applause. Though, LEDs are one of the cheapest as well as efficient sources of light energy, having covered the entire building with them gives the feeling of a monumental design. Anyhow, the project will definitely blow the minds of people with its remarkable display and design.
