Manacar Tower Facade

A beacon of dynamic light in the heart of Mexico City

Manacar Tower is at the junction of two important arteries in Mexico City: Avenida Insurgentes and Avenida Río Mixcoac. The building is 144 meters tall with an additional 40 meters below ground and contains a parking lot, mall and office space, lit under LEED Gold certification.

On the façade, the 4000ºK luminaires with Blade-like beam of light slats, customized specially for the project, precisely illuminate the width of the mullion and produce no light contamination/intrusion. During the day they are unnoticeable due to their small size and integration. As well as the lighting composition, dynamism was added by using a DMX controlled media façade so that the building achieves empathy with the surrounding urban rhythm.

We invite you to check out SyncroniCity, the artistic media content designed by our lab.
