BIG architects and kollision + schmidhuber & partner teamed up to showcase the possibilities of future urban mobility for AUDI at design miami 2011. the pavillion introduced a city paved with a digital interactive surface, liberating the streets from existing pedestrian and vehicular boundaries and allowing for flexibility in public spaces. the entire area was infused with a continuous flow of information, allowing for real-time interaction between the cars and the people on foot. 
 
 
the 185 square meter (1991 square feet) LED installation had 3D cameras which tracked the movement of passers-by. this data was processed and generated into artwork which was fed back to the panels, following the moving visitors with colorful pockets. the AUDI A2 driverless concept car was featured as the centrepiece of urban surface prototype, continuously emitting arrows to indicate its future path as it navigated between the visitors.

  • if i had money, i’ll invest it on neon or lighting industries. Seems like the future is all about fancy lighting..
