The Abu Dhabi Yas Hotel is one of the city's most elaborate and magnificently designed luxury hotels, but now it will boast another title—it is the world's largest LED structure.

Designed by Asymptote Architecture, the Abu Dhabi Yas Hotel features LED lighting designed by Arup, which wraps around the building like a dazzling neon shell due to its more than 5,300 sparkling diamond-shaped LED panels. The curvilinear structure of lights can also change color as well as display low-resolution 3D videos. Stats for Glowing Jelly Hotels (Update) Trending: Older & Warm
