Abstract

Could the use of high-resolution image equipment and the thermodynamic patterns that they produce have a significant application in architectural design? Architect Philip Beesley, a professor at the School of Architecture at the University of Waterloo in Canada, describes the explorations revealed by the Hylozoic Series, a collaborative series of immersive architectural environments directed by a team from the university. He explains how the subtle effects of the works are achieved by integrating active filters into canopies and screens that create immersive, forest-like installations.
