Breathing Wall Interactive Installation Art

Breathing Wall

Breathing Wall by Najla El Zein is an interactive installation located at the entrance hall of a private residence in Beirut. It is a dynamic three dimensional wall surface composed of variable-sized diamond shaped modules with two facets, white and gold.

Pinecone-Inspired Material that Reacts to Moisture

Water Reaction

Water Reaction, a project by Royal College of Art student Chao Chen, is an to create a material that reacts to external conditions with no human input required. Unlike other more high-tech approaches to this idea, Chen was inspired by a pinecone.

Disobedience Interactive Kinetic Installation

Disobedience

Nassia Inglessis is an artist and designer. Her sculpture, “Disobedience” was built over 9 months by her and a team of engineers. The piece is 56 feet long, about 10 feet tall, and can expand up to 5 feet as it engulfs its visitors when they walk through it.

Reef Interactive Installation

Reef

Reef redefines the role of architectural envelope by capitalizing on emerging material technology to imbue space with behavioral qualities. A category of metals that change shape according to temperature, offer the possibility of efficient fluid movement.

Awaken 1 (Interactive Kinetic Art Installation)

Awaken

Awakened 1 by Breakfast is made up of 168 Brixels (a mechanical medium BREAKFAST created), each with a mirrored and black side. The piece is an exploration of human interaction with a robotic medium.

A Methodology of Interactive Motion Facades Design through Parametric Strategies

Interactive Facades

This research by David Stephen Panya, Taehoon Kim and Seungyeon Choo aims to analyze the motion aspect of interactive facades design and simplify the conceptual and performance design process through parametric strategies.

Environmentally Responsive Textiles for Architecture

Responsive Textiles

This paper by Jane Scott describes the framework behind the development of a series of knitted prototypes inspired by the biomimetic model of the hygromorph. Three moisture responsive pieces are described which use properties of wood veneer.

EQ Teaser Kinetic Wall

EQ Teaser

The EQ Teaser was designed by Atelier Markgraph (Christoph Diederichs). wirmachenbunt (Christian Engler) developed the software, interaction and motion graphics.

Swarm Light Responsive Light Installation

Swarm Light

The ‘Swarm Light’ by rAndom International is an experimental light installation with a real ‚collective consciousness’ that subtly reacts to the viewer’s audible presence.

Echo Interactive Kinetic Art Installation

Echo

“Echo” by Breakfast is a multi-sensory experience that visualizes real-time data occurring on social media through ripples that move across the surface. As the amount of social posts changes, it will impact the clarity of your portrait.

Responsive Surface Structure

Responsive Surface

The project “Responsive Surface Structure” by Steffen Reichert is based on an experimental, inductive design approach. The project aims at creating a differentiated skin structure that can change its porosity in response to changes in ambient humidity and moisture.

Magnet-based Interactive Kinetic Bricks

Interactive Kinetic Bricks

This paper by Mohammad Kouchaki, Mohammadjavad Mahdavinejad, Parastoo Zali and Shahab Ahmadi, investigates innovative implementation of bricks in kinetic architecture.

Interactive Pavillions: Responsive Transformation of Structure

Interactive Pavilions

This thesis by Xiangru Chen is to design a mix-use pavilion, which detects occupancy and lighting/temperature conditions, and then transforms its structure in shape and scale to satisfy the spatial demands for the use.

MorphoLuminescence Interactive Installation

MorphoLuminescence

MorphoLuminesence by Project One Studio is a kinetic ceiling prototype that reacts to people standing and moving beneath it. Sensors detect speed and direction of people in relation to the piece. If a user stands still for a long enough period of time, the petals will retract into the completed surface.

Light Pollination Installation

Light Pollination Installation

Commissioned by iGuzzini, Light Pollination consists of 20,000 LED lights embedded on the ends of fibre-optic cables. These gently pulse with light to mimic the phenomenon of bioluminescence in nature.

Resonant Chamber

Resonant Chamber

Resonant Chamber, an interior envelope system that deploys the principles of rigid origami, transforms the acoustic environment through dynamic spatial, material and electro-acoustic technologies. The aim of rvtr is to develop a soundsphere able to adjust its properties in response to changing sonic conditions.

BIOSTAGOG Interactive Sculpture

BIOSTAGOG

Designed by Platige Image and Bridge, BIOSTAGOG is an interactive sculpture that combines algorithmic design, 3D printing, mapping and interaction. BIOSTAGOG was created to be a living organism in the lobby of Platige that takes an active part in the company’s everyday life.

ColorFolds Parametric Design

ColorFolds

As part of two NSF funded projects in the Sabin Design Lab at Cornell University, eSkin and KATS, ColorFolds is one product of ongoing trans-disciplinary research spanning across the fields of cell biology, materials science, physics, electrical and systems engineering, and architecture.

Hello Bathroom Interactive BathPod

Hello Bathroom

The Design team at PA Consulting, based in Cambridge, UK, created the BathPod in response to a concept brief. PA Design set out to combine ergonomics for the bathroom with digital interaction. The look aims to stand out while blending in through a range of textural finishes. 

Interactive Exploration of Shapes

Interactive Exploration of Shapes

In this paper by Masaaki Miki, Jun Mitani and Takeo Igarashi, authors developed a set of Grasshopper components which enables interactive physics simulation based on the finite element method (FEM). They named this add-on Ricecooker.

Ada Interactive Pavilion

Ada

In collaboration with microsoft research, artist-in-residence jenny sabin has designed the ‘ada’ installation for the tech company’s redmond campus. The work takes its name from ada lovelace, mathematician who is often credited as one of the first computer programmer.

Realtime Structural Design

Realtime Structural Design

The present thesis by Daniel Akesson aims to integrate structural feedback with geometric modeling. The user interfaces of conceptual design tools should be interactive and agile enough to follow the designer’s iterative workflow.

Lighting Interactive Smart Facade

Lighting Smart Facade

Giuseppe Ridolfi and Arman Saberi’s students at The University of Florence designed an interactive smart facade using Rhinoceros 3D, Grasshopper 3D and Kangaroo Physics.
