Oskar-von-Miller tower, Munich

The Oskar-von-Miller tower is used by the world-renowned Technische Universit√§t M√ľnchen to obtain precise weather data and conduct meteorological research. In October 2010, a team of top architects and lighting designers were hired to develop a solution to transform the soaring tower into a signature landmark and communication tool. When the originally-planned illumination systems were unable to meet the demands and challenges presented by the Oskar-von-Miller Tower transformation, the team turned to Traxon & e:cue for a dynamic lighting solution. 25 Traxon Dot XL-3 RGB systems and 23 Traxon String RGB systems, resulting in a total of more than 5,000 pixels of light, were paired with 16 e:cue Butlers and a Lighting Control Engine (LCE) to successfully solve the visibility, precision, budgetary, and timeline challenges posed by the project.
