Collective's weather station brings Castlemilk together
October 21 2009
LED lights installed in the northern stairwells of each tower will glow at night to create a beacon visible from across the city, dynamic controls will allow the lights to be manipulated in real time to allow an up to the minute reflection of next days weather forecast.
Designed by Castlemilk Tenants Housing Association with collaboration from GHA and Collective Architecture, the system was installed by Northern Light.
Three LED battens were installed per floor in the three 20 storey blocks with a PC, lighting controller and broadband internet connection to allow for a constantly updated visual weather forecast by documenting temperature, rainfall and cloud cover.
The system is flexible enough to demonstrate a variety of moving colours and patterns to celebrate key city events.
An official unveiling will take place on November 1.
