Near the main entrance, nine LED light surfaces in different shades of red are fixed to the corner
of the building, ranging in intensity from a cool, light magenta tone to a warm, rich shade of red.
The SCALE is based on an interactive moment in time:
The display is controlled by the number of fire-fighting operations underway.
The more the emergency calls, the higher the display level, which in turn moves just as the heat
from many outbreaks of fire or the activity in many emergency operations increases further into
the warm colour range.
As the number of emergency calls decreases, the indicator falls back into the cooler colour range.
If there is no emergency call, the display remains off.
Over time, continual ups and downs therefore ensue a permanent change in the display.
