Uniqua Insurance Company headquarters in Wien, Austria, completed in 2006. Mader Stublic Wiermann provided artistic content and Lichtkunstlicht designed the lighting. LED modules were placed in vertical stips between the double-layered glass and they flash photographic patterns during the nighttime. Eckelt Glas constructed the complex glazed facades. The 182,000 lights make it an enormous screen.
It towers to 246.06 ft at 22 floors, yet a third of the energy used is created with local geothermal heating and heat pump methods. It is one of the largest skyscrapers to be rated GreenBuilding, and the first in Austria. The building opened in 2006 at the height of the most recent economic boom. Uniqa's stock skyrocketed and then plummeted upon the building's completion.
