Interactive Architecture

I’ve had these great examples of interactive art and building projections in my head for a while now, but thought I should share them with TheScrapBook!

The Graffiti Research Lab is an awesome project, not in the least for their two great inventions – Throwies and Laser Tag.

Christopher Baker is perhaps less activist, but no less interesting, thanks to his work shown at AIGA. The interactive wall with texts is stunning. Check out the video here

TXTual Healing is a great project too that asks for interaction via text message that allows you to wear your heart on someone else’s sleeve… well, building really… Below is a video about Street Crime they did in London

Shadow Monsters is another favourite of mine, created by Philip Worthington, from the Design and the Elastic Mind exhibition at MOMA in NYC. April 2008

Philip Worthington, by the way, is a genius. Check out his Line Riders idea.

Check from 2.46 – some of the best 3D projection I’ve ever seen – not trying to do anything “unrealistic” these guys instead stick to the baics, but do them very well, tricking the eye and messing with the dimensions and fabric of the building.

Another great example of how you can genuinely trick the eye and play with the structure of a building, this time by playing with “shadows”
