The following project is done in collaboration with the studio 3XN and  Electrotexture Lab. is doing the lighting design on the project. The following is the vision of the project.

The project’s vision is to design a light installation for 3XN’s spring exhibition at the Danish Architecture Centre. The inspiration for the design will be based on biologically inspired algorithms. The biological principles of the project are based on self-organization in relation to agent-based design, also known as swarming behavior. This system will serve as the spatial form-finding principle which acts as an informed process of spatial design parameters.

This means that the agent system will serve as the direct spatial context, which operate on the measurable variables. This will move the design process away from the typical subjective object-oriented design process. The designer’s role is to design rules, parameters and environments in which the installation can develop and adapt. The project will also be a study of realizing a complex design process in a rational system with defined building components.

Kasper Guldager from GXN and student Thiru Manickam from the institute of Architecture, Design and Media Technology, Aalborg University did the design of the structural configuration. Tobias Thyrrestup and Esben Skouboe Poulsen developed a audio responsive swarm algorithm which brought the lamp to life.
