Iluma is a complete entertainment district incorporating theaters, clubs, bars, shopping and public space stacked up into a cube 80m x 80m x 80m. he building incorporates an interactive façade which is effective both during day and night.

The facade is formed by a tessellated pattern made up by plastic pieces. A regular matrix of fluorescent lamps produces a display screen, which however is distorted by the strong geometry of the individual light fixture and which is peppered by the regular perforations of the physical screen as well as by variations in the arrangements of the lighting fixture.
