Interactive Light Display Transforms Moroccan Church into a Multicolored, Reactive Art Experience

Interactive Light Display Transforms Moroccan Church into a Multicolored, Reactive Art Experience | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Sacré Coeur in Casablanca, Morocco was designed by French architect Paul Tournon in 1930. The cathedral's underuse (religious functions ceased in 1956) combined with its vaulting Neo-Gothic breadth, makes it the perfect venue for cultural engagement. 


Cue the lights: From April 3 - 6, French transmedia installation designer Miguel Chevalier bedecked the halls with Magic Carpets 2014, a projected animation that turned the institution's massive floor into a multicolored, reactive art experience.

'Moving Typography' in Amsterdam: Exploring New Ways of Representing and Interacting with Data

'Moving Typography' in Amsterdam:  Exploring New Ways of Representing and Interacting with Data | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Type/Dynamics at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam lets you experience data in fantastic news ways.

Type/Dynamics at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam was created by Dutch design studio LUST, and the installation (as a sentient piece of art) searches for real-time locations in the news, including "Ground Zero", "Reichstag”, or "Tiananmen Square”, from there locating images from Google Street View and turning them into grids filled with new information. Instead of a typical photo representation, the location is presented in purely typographically form. Visitors are then 'transported’ to that location by wrapping themselves in all the news of the area.
"A visitor does not need to grasp all possible readings of a work at once," continues LUST. "Instead multiple story lines unfold over multiple readings. All aspects from content to movement, interaction, data collection and collaboration contribute to this new literature."

Net Blow-Up Yokohama: An Inflatable, Interactive Structure

Net Blow-Up Yokohama: An Inflatable, Interactive Structure | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The Numen/For Use guys are at it again. Known for their fun, playful, interactive structures, the Croatian-Austrian collective has recently gone inflatable.

Their latest installation in Yokohama looks like a carnival Moonwalk gone wild. The stylized cloud-like object has nets inside connected to its inner lining that expand and become taut as the blob is blown up. The exterior membrane is sheer enough that when lit from within, and it acts as a projection screen for the activity inside, while the nets provide climbing and tumbling surfaces on multiple levels.

An iPad Guide To Building The Perfect Sustainable City

An iPad Guide To Building The Perfect Sustainable City | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

In 2010, Harvard’s Graduate School of Design published Ecological Urbanism, a book of interdisciplinary essays on sustainable city-building. But the project had one inescapable shortcoming: When you’re dealing with a field that’s evolving so rapidly, a finite, physical book is liable to be outdated by the time it leaves the printer.

So upon completing the collection, the school commissioned Portland-based interactive studio Second Story to transform the book into an iPad app, a resource that would draw from the original text but could also be updated with new projects and papers as needed. Now available for free, the app shows how dynamic areas of study can benefit greatly from equally dynamic texts.

Features like interactive graphs are innovative ways to access data, as well as useful tools for understanding it. "While working on the app, we found that the data visualizations revealed patterns that told another meta-story that already existed in the book," he says. "Essentially, the patterns illustrated trends in sustainable design, which is attractive for both scholars and the general reader to see."

Will Smart Technologies Shape Future Highways?

Will Smart Technologies Shape Future Highways? | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

With the proliferation of mobile electronic technologies, interactive displays have begun to appear more frequently in fixed contexts such as smart rooms and media-driven building facades.


The latest focus of smart surface research is on the most connective element of the constructed environment: the road.


At the recent Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, Studio Roosegaarde announced a joint effort with Heijmans Infrastructure to create the Smart Highway. This proposal for an electronically-enhanced road system fuses disparate elements of existing road infrastructure. Lighting, signage, and the roadbed are now a singular, integrated system.

The Digital Interactive Roadway designed by BIG for the Audi Urban Future exhibition in 2011 proposes a similar roadbed enhancement. The surface of the DIR incorporates strips of LED lights and a distributed network of sensors that respond directly to changing automotive and pedestrian traffic.

Meet ObE, A Living Installation That Provides An Immersive Experience

Meet ObE, A Living Installation That Provides An Immersive Experience | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
Last spring the MUTEK Festival and the Society for Arts and Technology [SAT] released DROMOS, an immersive experience based on the science of speed. Although the festival's central mandate is to promote the best of electronic music, it also runs the parallel mission of showing off the best in innovative audiovisual material. Fresh off the success of their first collaborative work and the glowing response from viewers and the media, Mathieu Le Sourd a.k.a Maotik, and Eric Raynaud, a.k.a Fraction, are back this Wednesday with a whole new interactive, living installation.

VVM Illuminates Rijksmuseum Passage with Bicycle Lightbattle in the Netherlands

VVM Illuminates Rijksmuseum Passage with Bicycle Lightbattle in the Netherlands | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

This interactive bicycle and light artwork by VVM illuminates a passage of the Rijksmuseum in the Netherlands.

Installed as part of the Amsterdam light festival, ‘Lightbattle’ consists of an open arch of nearly five thousand fluorescent tubes, spanning over a cycling lane. Five bicycles are positioned on each side, offering a challenge for passersby to pedal bright blue and red lights from one side of the walkway to the other. Energy is generated as they pedal, not only determining the strongest rider but also creating a radiated arch as they try and defeat their opponents.

A Jungle Gym for City Sidewalks

A Jungle Gym for City Sidewalks | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
A knotty lattice of colorful play-tubes is an intriguing use of a public space.


They say the city is an urban jungle. But an urban jungle gym? A\V Studio‘s new design for a spunky tubular playground at the foot of Morphosis’ Cooper Union New Academic Building proposes just that. "CMYPlay" is a knotty lattice of colorful play-tubes embedded in the ground floor of the Morphosis building, with crawl spaces wrapped around slanting columns and each other in a dense social thicket "befitting of Manhattan." The fanciful design is an appealing gesture and an intriguing use of what is virtually empty space.


An entry to the 3Dimensional Front,"CMYPlay" creates an interactive space outside the Milavec Hakimi Gallery at 41 Cooper Square. A\V Studio’s proposal "thickens" the facade by rehabilitating the underskirt area as an active social space within the local city fabric.

Burrowing visitors will (quite literally) run into strangers and colleagues alike, while the tops of the tubes can be street furniture. The clash of color and use of plastic are a pointed contrast to the details and surfaces of the Morphosis building. Also, the tubes could be recycled and sent to various playgrounds and schools to be re-used...

Harvard’s New Ecological Urbanism App: A Glimpse of Our Urban Future

Harvard’s New Ecological Urbanism App: A Glimpse of Our Urban Future | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The Harvard Graduate School of Design released its Ecological Urbanism app last month. The interactive app adapts content from the GSD book of the same name, which explores how designers can unite urbanism with environmentalism.


Combining data from around the world, the app “reveals and locates current practices, emerging trends, and opportunities for new initiatives” in regard to the future of cities.


A collaboration between the school and Second Story Interactive Studios,the app stems from the GSD’s Ecological Urbanism conference and dovetails with the duo’s ongoing efforts to explore sustainability in our cities of the future.

More than 100 participating architects and designers have provided content for the project, including such heavyweights as OMA, Rem Koolhaas, Kara Oehler, and Stefano Boeri. And the ever-evolving app allows designers and academics to add research and project updates as they happen...
