Overview

Thirteen Lotus Flowers, ranging in height from 15 to 19 feet, were built into the rooftop during construction of Planet 13, Cannabis Superstore and Entertainment Complex. Each flower responds to input on two control panels near the entrance which feature laser-cut aluminum inlay in red oak. By triggering the touch sensors, visitors can change the colors and patterns of the flowers. The flowers and control panels communicate with each other over the building's Ethernet network.
