The University’s Active Learning Laboratory, on Brownlow Hill, will be illuminated yellow to celebrate the launch of the Marie Curie Daffodil Appeal tonight.
The Active Learning Laboratory is one of 20 landmarks across the UK that will be turning yellow for Marie Curie, including the London Eye, Inverness Castle, and the Welsh Assembly Building.
The Daffodil appeal is the Marie Curie flagship fundraising campaign, and throughout March the charity encourages everyone to give a donation in return for a daffodil pin. All money raised allows Marie Curie nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes and the charity’s hospices.
The Lab is lit with hundreds of LEDs and can be seen as far away as Wirral. The facade of the building comprises 826 glass panels of which 413 panels are constructed from twin layers of glass, sandwiched with a dotted pattern. These translucent dots give a surface on to which light is reflected but also allow a direct passage of light through. The latest LED technology and electronic solar tracking equipment means that light display can be illuminated with the benefit of hugely reduced energy running costs.
