LOTUS Dome

LOTUS 7.0 by Studio Roosegaard is a living wall composed of smart foils that fold open in response to human behavior. Walking by LOTUS, hundreds of aluminum foils unfold themselves in an organic way; generating transparent voids between private and public.

Via LOTUS, physical walls are made immaterial, giving way to a poetic morphing of space and people.
