This is a pavilion of glass trees called Living Light. It takes the air quality information from 27 sensors already stationed in throughout the city of Seoul, then displays it with lighting changes. Each canopy represents different a district of the city. People can receive texts with the current air quality and other info by simply sending a zip code to the Living Light Hotline. The corresponding canopy blinks at the same time.
“Our project aims to combine real-time data about the environment with dynamic lighting to create an interactive facade of the future.”
