"The Force is strong in Abu Dhabi".

The headline pretty much sums it up. The company Twofour54 and Aldar Properties PJSC worked together to create the giant Starkiller Base that was placed on the coin-shaped Aldar HQ building in Abu Dhabi. The awesome sticker installation took nine non-stop days to print using material that would cover two-and-a-half football patches, followed by 420 combined hours of manpower to install on the surface of the building. You can watch the video above.

Just in case you didn't know, director J.J. Abrams chose the outskirts of the city to shoot the exteriors for the desert planet, Jakku, and this cool project was a tribute to that. The structure is the headquarters of a company called Aldar, and it's 100 meters tall with about 17,000 square meters of surface area.
