New animated lights at the Bethesda Hyatt Regency (Video + Photos)
Check out the new LED light strip on the side of the Hyatt Regency hotel at the Bethesda Metro Center. I like it. A rare example of the kind of design touches we were seeing initially in the redevelopment of downtown Bethesda (i.e. the Newlands Building right behind this, light sculpture on Bethesda Crescent building, LED lights on Upstairs at Bethesda Row facade), before things went off-track.
The new trend of dark rooftops and few lighting accents needs to end. Tysons is cleaning our clock not only in the number of jobs and major corporate headquarters, but also design-wise, and in the nighttime skyline department.
