Imagine a skyscraper facade covered in two sided light emitting panels that can create beautiful patterns once the sun goes down. Such displays could beautify city skylines, turning them into vibrant works of art.

This is just what Israeli artist, Meidad Marzan has done with the facade of a building in Jerusalem. As you can see from the photo above, these lights can be programmed to form all sorts of super cool designs.

What’s even better is these light panels (organic light emitting diodes) have photovoltaics on one side. They collect energy from the sun during the day and then flip to the OLED (organic light emitting diodes) side at night, thus shining all the energy they collected over the day out into the night sky.

UrbanTiles can also be interactive, allowing residents to change the configuration of which tiles light up and creating their own unique designs.

Have a look at this amazing video of UrbanTiles in action below!
