A Kinetic Facade

This is a short time-lapse film of the
Glass Mill building in London. A new leisure facility created with a kinetic glass facade designed by artist Phil Coy. A palette of 1,800 glass pixels form a multicoloured grid across the vast curved facade of the building. The grid is backlit, fitted with sensors which through computer programming, respond to the level of external sound around from traffic noise to human voice’s. Glass Mill won best Built Project-community scale in 2014 for “it’s transformational impact on the wider area, benefits to the local community, design and ingenuity”
