Tower of Sparkle
Andreas Focke

In its annual AL Light & Architecture Design Awards this year, our sister lighting publication gave a commendable achievement prize to the Tower of Sparkle. For Munich, Germany's biannual "Long Night of Architecture" event, Pfarré Lighting Design helped Steidle Architekten dress up their unfinished 17-story Highrise One office building as a glowing, swirling disco ball. Writes editorial intern Ayda Ayoubi: The project "was close to completion when Pfarré’s team developed a concept to dramatically transform the tower portion into a sparkling volume that could be seen from all over the city."
