DXTalks: Daan Roosegaarde's Interactive Landscapes
Design Exchange, 234 Bay Street, Toronto, ON M5K 1B2, Canada
Using smart materials and microchips, Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde builds interactive landscapes that explore the relationships between space, people and technology. "It's not about high-tech, but more about high-social," he has said. Working with a team of designers and technical experts at his social design lab, Studio Roosegaarde, he specializes in public space commissions, creating installations that respond to sound and movement.His work has been exhibited in cities across the globe including London, Tokyo and Hong Kong and such projects as Intimacy, Lotus and Dune, have set the bar for technological innovation. Roosegaarde is currently working with Dutch construction company Heijmans to develop the Smart Highway, a sustainable road system that uses dymanic paint, glow-in-the-dark lines and wind light to adapt to various traffic conditions. In Eindhoven, he recently completed the permanent installation of Crystals, a project where hundreds of LED rocks can be arranged in infinite configurations by passersby.
