Artist Mario Pasqualotto created a light intervention at the internationally renowned Mies Van der Rohe Pavilion to give a completely new night look to the building. Inspired in the basic shapes of the pavilion and using ProtoPixel technology, Pasqualotto composed a lighting layer that was mostly appreciated from outdoors, creating a completely new way to see the building from outside.

The transitions between indoor and outdoor are also opening new types of experiences. In this regard, the work of the master Ingo Maurer Flying to Peace at Messe Frankfurt is a remarkable example. It is a vertical pendulum in the form of an ellipsoid that can been seen through the glass facade moving all the way up and down.

Light and sound are also a powerful combination for acting in the outdoor and transform everyday spaces in unique environments. XAA Arquitectura and MiD Studio have explored this interaction in SFERA. ProtoPixel provided the lighting control that, in combination with real time custom generative software, triggered patterns of light and sound in a perfect sync.
