Interactive composition for installation by
Philip Beesley’s Living Architecture Systems Group
- In collaboration with 4DSOUND

Can architecture feel, care, and respond? Can it start, in primitive ways, to come alive? 

With a pioneering approach to structures and space that rests within the emerging field of responsive architecture, Philip Beesley: Transforming Space invites you to imagine and explore what architecture might look like in the future.

This installation merges chemistry, artificial intelligence and encompassing soundscapes from Philip Beesley and his collaborators in the Living Architecture Systems group to create a visually stunning, interactive environment that surrounds you like an enchanting artificial forest.

Hovering from above, delicate canopies and soaring clouds made up of lightweight meshes and 3D printed forms are embedded with responsive mechanisms and tiny microprocessors, creating an immersive structure that breathes, shifts, and even learns in relation to the people it surrounds.

Bringing together artists, designers, scientists and engineers, the Living Architecture Systems group pushes the boundaries of traditional architecture through the use of state of the art technologies.
