As the leading provider of woven metal fabric for architectural solutions worldwide, GKD has spent two decades innovating and perfecting transparent media façade technology. The result is Mediamesh®, a stainless steel wire mesh interwoven with LED lights that can transform any building into a dynamic, vivid experience of communication. Learn more in our latest blog post.
Dynamic, interactive façades work well in large-scale applications and can cover sizable existing surfaces while decreasing the use of electricity compared to traditional electronic billboards. Plus, thanks to a high level of transparency, these façades allow for natural daylight and ventilation to reach the buildings surface.
The architects at WTL Design, with the help of BMW Building Design Senior Manager, Nicholas Ott, designed the BMW Brand Experience Center in Shanghai using a minimalistic approach. The project marks the first use of GKD’s Mediamesh technology in China. The stunning glass and white design evokes transparency, both in the building itself and the brand’s identity. The 21,500 square foot building utilizes interior Mediamesh screens that are visible from the outside, thanks again to the transparent glass façade.
In the latest Mediamesh® project by GKD, the James Branch Cabell Library at Virginia Commonwealth University is transformed with stainless steel wire mesh interwoven with LED lights. The vitrine where the Mediamesh® sits faces out to the rose plaza; one of the most densely populated places on campus. Two panels of Mediamesh® are interconnected to create the visually stunning and interactive screen that is now a popular attraction for students and visitors.
