Common Weathers – NYSCI by The Living + SOFTlab

Category: Architecture Published on 02 Jan, 2013 Tags: , , , , , ,

The Living and New York-based studio SOFTlab have created ‘Common Weathers’, an iconic exhibition design and interactive project that engages the exhibition themes for the New York Hall of Science – NYSCI. The design involves a “cloud” suspended from the ceiling that envelops the various works of art under a common roof and at the same time allows for each work to have a customized identity and experience. The cloud creates captivating views from above and from within. The interactive project involves lighting embedded in the cloud that will glow and blink according to real-time public awareness and public participation in the exhibition.

The brief asked for the exhibition to not only account for pragmatic concerns, but that the design be considered an installation as well. SOFTlab worked with Arup on the overall structure of rings and the attachments to the complex ceiling in the Great Hall. Architects said “It was a large project for us and had many challenges and sweat involved, but we are all happy with how it turned out! The show is up until January 13th, 2012. Definitely worth checking out the show and 9 artist installations!”
