As well as giving us a taste for what we’ll be wearing next year, London Fashion Week also saw the return of designer Anya Hindmarch’s Chubby Hearts campaign featuring a huge ‘cloud’ beanbag in the City’s historic Banqueting House.
Interactive architecture and installations are responsive to their changing circumstances using sensors, processors, and effectors embedded into their core design and structure. This means that they go beyond merely being automated, to include interactions and responses that are pure communication, placing the design firmly in the emotive and artistic realm.
Here, we bring you some examples of interactive architectural and installation projects and the people and studios behind them.
Kinetic art is any art that either depends on movement to create the desired effect or art that creates a perceivable movement for the viewer. Some installations allow the viewer to walk in, on, or become a part of them. They usually seek to communicate sensorial experiences, which allow the artist to break barriers and often include multiple disciplines. Here are some of our favourite kinetic artists.
Creating functional buildings that provide shelter from the elements is a given when it comes to architectural design, but some are more innovative and beautiful than others. Here we bring you a selection of our favourite projects incorporating shade from the sun.
