Cityscope Urban Kaleidoscope

Cityscope, Urban Kaleidoscope, is a light installation displayed in Cologne, Germany. The faceted structure designed by Marco Hemmerling reflects fragmented views of the German city center. The concept as Hemmerling describes it is "the idea of it as an object that brings people together. It makes you think about what you see. The city becomes one object. It's a complex system that moves and changes. It stimulates interaction and distorts people's perception." The radiant foils reflect subtle hues during the day and are illuminated at night for a more dramatic effect.

Looks like the world's largest gemstone of iceberg proportions is bursting through the sidewalk.
