Shanghai’s Amazing Dream Cube Pavilion
Corporate Shanghai Pavilion was rad – it’s made of recycled materials, but we do not know how rad until the project designer sends first pictures from the pavilion is completed.
The entire facade of the building is covered in an array of LEDs that can be changed on a whim, but – and here he gets cool – lighting scheme is determined by people interacting in the building.
Millions of LED lights covering the outside of the pavilion, which is made from recycled materials. Rather than be controlled by a computer program, the lighting is determined by the visitors inside.
The Dream Cube pulses of different colors and designs in response to the physical actions of the visitors who participate in it.
As visitors enter the building they first came to the queue where they learn that their actions can have effects of buildings lights.
With clapping and waving their hands, they make a collective response of the LED light changes.
Visitors then go through a series of interactive exhibits depicting the city of Shanghai, and eventually they came to “Control Room Cube Dream”, where they waited for the shock of interactive and hopefully will give them a reason to think. U.S. firm ESI Design and architect Yung Ho Chang is collaborating on interactive design as a whole.
In the use of recycled materials and LED lights, the Pavilion features the hot sun screen on the roof of the tube, which can collect solar energy to produce hot water up to more than 200 ° F.
The roof also collects rainwater and filters and save them for everyday use in the Pavilion as well as for use in the misters.
