Balance Tower

ag4 en tant que Architectes.

The Balance Tower is part of the newly constructed pumping station built by the Spanish water supply company ATLL and is designed to conceal a water reservoir within it. Its media skin developed by ag4 is a stunning fusion of moving images with the extraordinary architecture of the buil-ding.

By night, the dynamic and transparent facade will display an installation consisting of abstract-figurative light patterns and text elements at a resolution of 3650 pixels.

Minimalist animations evoke the natural water cycle of rain, water flow and evaporation. The design concept for the media installation was conceived by ag4 in close collaboration with ruisanchez arquitectes and ATLL.

The average energy demand of approx. 0.7 kW-h required to power the installation by night will be generated through the tower’s own photovol-taic system and then fed into the public power grid during the day. The media skin of the Fontsanta Balance Tower is a pioneering contribution by ag4 media facade GmbH to the development and construction of “green” media facades.
