The installation Trans-port is an interactive physical environment used to simulate an architectural theory. The theory being you could map user data (location, movement, crowd size) to physically, visually and aurally manipulate the space occupied. You enter an enclosed space in between three projection panels. Motion sensors capture any movement below and trigger environmental changes which are projected on the screens. Thus creating a communication between user and physical environment.


Trans-port (2001) is a multimedia data transmission Direction pavilion which can move like a bundle of muscles. The Director and the behavior to be adjusted via the World Wide Web-based game.

How does it work?
The “active building construction” responds to the trans-port Internet game. People play on the Internet, and so the parameters in the physical pavilion. Trans-ports produced data in real time, so that changes in shape can be seen directly.

The structure
This structure consists of pneumatic hydraulic cylinders, which are monitored and controlled by a computer. The cylinders are connected with spherical joints, so that three-dimensional movement is possible.

The skin
Both the indoor and outdoor area must be very flexible for the kinetic bone structure. The 3-D membrane expands and shrinks like a bellows of an accordion.
