There are quite a few of these kinds of LED-based buildings being built now, but 10 years ago when I took these pictures, this was quite a sight for me.

The Ars Electronica Center, in Linz, reflecting on the Danube.
More than 5000 m² of outer glass utilizing 40,000 high-powered LEDs.

The side of the Lentos Kunstmuseum.
Notice the museum’s name etched in the glass.

The Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta immediately comes to mind. It’s a 1.4 million square foot facility with large, impossibly high-ceiling corridors and multiple massive conference rooms, making it reminiscent of the Jedi Temple from Star Wimage

I visited the Burj Khalifa in Dubai a month ago and thought it was Very Outer Space looking! My friends commented on my photos of it that it looked like I was on another planet.

I know this is a very contentious building, but it’s actually on my bucket list of things to see in person. It looks like hot tomatoes to me.

Vancouver, Canada IS the futuristic city to top em all. It goes from classic colonial European to places like Vancouver House, plus the multicultural-ness makes it feel like it could be a city anywhere.
