43 Illuminated Architectural Designs

From Color-Changing Architecture to Glowing Floral Facades

— July 18, 2013 — Art & Design
A creative way to make a structure stand out from the rest is by adding a dash of color to the mix, and these illuminated architectural designs are some great examples of how fluorescent and glow-in-the-dark features can make any building the center of attention.

While modern architectural buildings often seek to feature the most futuristic and minimalist designs, that doesn't necessarily guarantee that the structure will make an impression or stand out amongst the other more modern buildings. These illuminated designs however, feature all sorts of eye-catching colors and fluorescent lighting techniques that will certainly capture the gaze of anyone who happens to walk by.

From rainbow-colored bridge designs to buildings that feature exteriors that change from one color to another, these illuminated architectural designs will certainly bring a wow factor to any location or city centre.
