LED Lightning Roof, Busan Cinema Center

Built on a 30,217-sq.m plot of land, the Busan Cinema Center houses three main buildings and an outdoor plaza including a theater/performing arts center called “Cinemountain” and “BIFF Hill,” which contains the offices of the film festival’s organizing committee.

The roof of the center is the largest in the world. Weighing 3,500 tons, it is 1.5 times the size of a soccer field. Propping up the huge roof is a small pillar that resembles two ice-cream cones connected together. Under the roof are 42,600 LED bulbs that light up in a kaleidoscope of colors at night.
