Known as Mountain Dwelling, this impressive apartment building is located in Copenhagen, Denmark and was design by BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group + JDS Architects.  As the architect states, “The north and west facades are covered by perforated aluminum plates, which let in air and light to the parking area, and the perforations in the facade form a huge reproduction of Mount Everest. During the day, the perforations appear black on the bright aluminum, and the picture resembles a rough rasterized photo. During the night, the facade becomes lit from the inside and appears as a photographic negative, rendered in the different colors of the parking levels.”
