Urban Life: The Touch project in Brussels

Touch was an urban interactive installation by LAb[au] that took place from 26 December 2006 until 15 January 2007 on the Dexia-Tower and Place Rogier in Brussels, Belgium.

The 145 m high Dexia-Tower with 4200 windows each individually color-lightened by RGB-led bars was turned into an immense display.

At the bottom of the tower an interface station was mounted where people could interact individually or in groups with the display on the tower through a multi touch screen.
