iart has collaborated with AMDL Circle and Michele De Lucchi to design the Novartis Pavilion facade.
Where sunlight becomes art: the zero-energy media facade of the Novartis Pavillon combines organic photovoltaics and LEDs to create a communicative building skin.
It features a total of 10,000 solar modules with 30,000 embedded LEDs and consumes only as much power as it can produce.
This visually multi-layered membrane is used to screen the works of three international artists.
The Novartis Pavillon is located in Basel, Switzerland, and is a place of learning and exchange, to bring the world of science and medicine closer to the community.
