Al Qasr Mall
PROJECTS / ARCHITECTURE
Currently undergoing final stages of construction is Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s brand new, state-of-the-art shopping center, the Al Qasr Mall. One of the Stand-out features of the mall is its massive mediafaçade, covering 3 of four sides of the 4 story building.
The Al Qasr Mall Mediafaçade is comprised of 2350 PixelDOME™ luminaires, each spaced 1m apart from each other and 140 Power-Data control units, both designed and manufactured by GVA Lighting. The unique dome feature of the Luminaires allows them to be seen clearly from a very wide viewing angle – greater than 180° - which ensures visibility is not lost at obscure viewing angles, even when mounted flush with a surface. This is especially important for the Al Qasr Mall installation, where the main wall of the mediafaçade has a convex curve which would render a flat lensed luminaire invisible at all but the most direct viewing angles.
The image seen here is a rendering of then installation when completed. Check back soon for images and video of the completed mediafaçade.
