Hortus Bionica

How can we design sustainable buildings that really move us? The Hortus Bionica species are the inhabitants of our vision for an adaptive future architecture that interacts with its users and environmental factors.

The resulting species, organic 3D textile installations, are able to react to stimuli and change shape in an automated way though sensor technology. This garden of robotic textile creatures resemble nature in architectural setting and carry out a number of smart functions, including climate and UV control, to react to changing circumstances and improve our habitat.

The research is an interdisciplinary collaboration with Sensor Lab and supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL
