An interesting twist on this particular project was to seamlessly integrate the design without disturbance to the exterior façade. With the help of Color Kinetic's colour-changing LED technology, Port Coquitlam City Hall illuminates the rich heritage of the building’s exterior when celebrating key civic events and people. During the day, the building turns on and off automatically with the astronomical time clock feature, coming on at sunset to its excellent default white show. Through the use of the controller, preprogrammed coloured shows marking anniversaries and celebrations can be stored for the appropriate day in the controller’s calendar.
