Does anyone know?

I think I once found an explanation what the different colours mean online - needless to say I forgot about it a few days later...
I keep wondering once in a blue moon what the colours stand for though...

Yeah I saw that online explanation too but didn't bother printing it off or memorizing it because when they still had a marketing suite I popped in and asked about the light box and from thier explanation I realised that its not comparable to a baromoter in accuracy, its more of a kinetic light sculpture - changing colour in reaction to changes in air pressure.

Thanks, James. Now I just need to learn what it actually means when it says "high pressure" ;0)

(Well worth clicking on your link, if only to read "The beacon on the top of Tabard Square's residential tower is intended to act as a 'beacon for urban regeneration', and will enhance Tabard Square as a landmark and inspiration to the local community," - which I'm editing to make clear was NOT anything you said, James, but a quote from Berkeley Homes)

...if you press it, they will come.

High pressure = it's going to rain soon.
Low pressure = it's raining.

Well, I don't feel inspired by it, but at least they didn't use the word 'iconic' (this time).

I think it maybe has to continue in its role as a "landmark and inspiration" for a few years before it can be truly called iconic ;0)

I'd love to hear the Berkeley Homes bloke describe the piazza outside St George's.....
