Lotus Dome’ is a living dome made out of hundreds of ultra-light responsive aluminum flowers.
When approached, the big silver dome lights up and opens its flowers. Its behavior moves from soft breathing to a more dynamic mood when more people interact. The light slowly follows people, creating an interactive play of light and shadow. The graphic representations of the lotus flower on the walls and the deep bass sound transform the Renaissance environment into a ‘Techno-Church’. (more…)

AHL realized an sophisticated entrance for 221 Gallery in California, USA.
Using different types of display technologies one get´s the impression to be guided into the building by moving light.
At the front we find a high res panel which can provide useful information’s – the overhead area is of lower resolution but connects to an other high resolution screen located inside the building. This all together composes a very convincing interpretation of how an entrance can look like nowadays (more…)
Although movement is intrinsic to any media façade, architecture usually just provides the stable, immobile screen for
digital motion. By facilitating actual movement, the kinetic façade exemplifies architecture as a medium in itself and
creates a choreography of dynamic patterns. The moving façade that is seamlessly integrated into the building’s skin
was developed together with Knippers Helbig Advanced Engineering during the planning phases. (more…)
Kinetic installation with 864 OLEDS – LivingSculpture was created by WHITEvoid as a kinetic centre piece for the PHILIPS trade fair stand at the Light+Building trade fair 2012 in Frankfurt, Germany.
The installation is composed of 24 movable triangular aluminium frames carrying 864 ultra thin glass OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes) altogether. The 36 OLEDs on each of the 24 triangular bases form a larger triangle and the final form is created by superimposed triangles. Even when it is not moving, the 5 by 6 meter kinetic installation is impressive. However it really draws attention to itself when the 24 triangles are set in motion and more than 860 OLEDs light up the room. (more…)
A radical design in both architecture and lighting. The iconic double-looped shape, a spiralling exhibition space, biking lanes, a pool of water with the famous Little Mermaid, and a beautiful dynamic illumination of both inner spaces and outer façades. During nighttime the façade displayed a vibrant, but stylish show of patterns and animations that made the building come to life. (more…)
