Design competition launched by MOCCA (Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art) Invited design ideas and concepts that destroy the existing notions of art galleries and to re-imagine their future existence.
Baharash Architecture proposed a Responsive Architecture: “The Google gallery” which is a digital pod for our 21st century digital world.
These interactive pods will help museums thrive in our increasingly digital landscape. They communicate the various events within the nearby museums to enhance community engagement in activities and arts whilst promoting social interaction. They are re-locatable and can reach people everywhere to inspire and challenge them to explore their world and open up new horizons.
Ultimately, they will become a powerful educational learning tool for the entire community, regardless of age, need or background.
This Responsive Architecture was shortlisted by MOCCA and exhibited at their gallery. The project also received the no.1 spot on “Holly Knows Art” blog.
The challenge of creating digital & responsive environments is starting to take trend with the introduction of augmented technology. At Baharash Architecture we use 3D technology to communicate our designs in real time with our clients. The next step is for us to incorporate technology into the next stages of the design cycle: The building itself!
