Buildings That Wake-Up At Night
Some structures are designed so they are not beautiful creations of architecture, but are also dynamic and changing. One of the ways to achieve this effect is by light and color, that every night transform buildings like the ones you are about to see into unique and exceptionally beautiful structures. Have a look at some of these, and see them during the day and after dark.

This colourful building sits at the heart of a lake, and each night it 'opens' anew and lit with a beautiful array of colors.
