      “I’ve always been fascinated with making things that connect the virtual world and the real world,” says Dutch artist, designer, inventor and entrepreneur Daan Roosegaarde. Through the creation of interactive landscapes that instinctively respond to sound and the environment, Roosegaarde’s work reveals the dynamic relations between architecture, people and technology. For Roosegaarde, the field of design has never been about making more chairs, lamps or tables, but rather a means to improve life. “I think the role of the designer today is to look at the future of mobility, the future of energy and the future of health in order to come up with new ideas and behaviours”, he explains. In this exclusive interview, Roosegaarde tells us about The Smog Free Project as well as the recently launched first iteration of the Smart Highway project. Located in Beijing, The Smog Free Project sees the Dutch designer developing a safe, energy-friendly installation to capture smog and create clean air in high-density cities that are extremely polluted. In order to realise this project, Roosegaarde plans on building a gigantic electronic vacuum cleaner to suck up Beijing’s smog in order to create the cleanest park in the city. Working with ENS Europe and Bob Ursem, experts in nano air cleansers, Roosegaarde’s The Smog Free Project will produce the largest air purifier in the world and, in turn, a place where people can experience the future, which is pollution-free air, according to Roosegaarde. “It’s very exciting for me as a designer to create something that will improve life,” he adds. He hopes the project will encourage the people of Beijing to work together in making the whole city smog free. “I’m interested in making things which are interactive for the people around it,” he adds. Earlier this year, Roosegaarde’s first iteration of the Smart Highway project was realised in the Netherlands. The project as a whole makes use of interactive lights, smart energy and adaptable road signs for the world’s first and most sustainable, safe and intuitive road. “For me, the Smart Highway project shows the possibility of making things which look unrealisable at the beginning possible, and absolutely necessary if we want to make cities of the future,” he concludes.

        www.studioroosegaarde.net - Rainbow Station by artist Daan Roosegaarde connects the historic Amsterdam Central Station by using astronomy science to create a site specific rainbow of light. Together with astronomers of the University of Leiden, Roosegaarde unravels light efficiently into a spectrum of colours. Via new liquid crystal technology which is developed for research on exoplanets, Rainbow Station takes the exact shape of the 125 year old historic station roof.
 The artwork marks the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the railway station, and the start of the UNESCO International Year of Light 2015. Rainbow Station can be seen every day for a brief moment within one hour after sunset at Amsterdam Centraal Station (east side, platform 2b). The light and colour offers the fifty million travellers a year, a magical moment at night.

                  www.studioroosegaarde.net - Smart Highways are interactive and sustainable roads of tomorrow by designer Daan Roosegaarde and Heijmans Infrastructure. The first Smart Highway is Glowing Lines which are lines that charge at day-time, and glow at night for eight hours. Here the landscape becomes energy-neutral and a poetic experience. The first pilot of Glowing Lines has been realised at N329 in Oss (NL) and will be further launched international. New designs include ‘Dynamic Paint’, ‘Interactive Light’, ‘Induction Priority Lane’ and ‘Road Printer’. The goal is to make roads which are more sustainable and interactive by using light, energy and road signs that automatically adapt to the traffic situation. The collaboration between Roosegaarde and Heijmans is a true example of innovative industries. The design and interactivity from Studio Roosegaarde and the craftsmanship of Heijmans are fused into one common goal: innovation of the Dutch landscape. Smart Highway has been awarded with a Dutch Design Award, Accenture Innovation Award, and is winner of the INDEX Award 2013.
