  2. studioroosegaarde.net - Lotus is a living wall made out of smart foils which fold open in response to human behavior. Walking by 'Lotus', hundreds of aluminium foils unfold themselves in an organic way; generating transparent voids between private and public. Here physical walls become immaterial, through a poetic morphing of space and people.

  4. ShapeShift is an experiment in future possibilities of architectural materialization. This project explores the potential application of electro-active polymer (EAP) at an architectural scale. EAP offers a new relationship to built space through its unique combination of qualities. It is an ultra-lightweight, flexible material with the ability to change shape without the need for mechanical actuators. As a collaboration between the chair for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ETHZ) and the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA), ShapeShift bridges gaps between advanced techniques in architectural design/fabrication and material science as well as pushing academic research towards real world applications.
