.

Another strange development – an indicator of respiration, which is an LED bulb that is inserted into the nostril and the lights every time you breathe. Even the inventor really can not explain why this is necessary, but looks like a cool idea in general.

‘Dune’ by Daan Roosegaard

Artist and designer Daan Roosegaarde’s remarkable works of art function as a documentation of the dynamic relationship between architecture, people, and technology. His designs, such as ‘Dune’ and ‘intimacy,’ are tactile high-tech environments in which viewer and space become one. This connection, established between ideology and technology, results in what roosegaarde calls techno-poetry. In 2009, Roosegaarde won the Dutch Design award. He has been the focus of exhibitions at the tate Modern, the national Museum in Tokyo, the Victoria and albert Museum in London, and various public spaces in Rotterdam and Hong Kong. ‘Dune’ is a public interactive landscape that interacts with human behavior. This hybrid of nature and technology is composed of large amounts of fibers that brighten according to the sounds and motion of passing visitors. Its most recent version is filled with hundreds of interactive lights and sounds. ‘Dune’ investigates nature in a futuristic relation with urban space through sight, movement and
interaction.

The Shanghai Museum of Glass

Our Platinum Award Winner “The Shanghai Museum of Glass” is located on a former glass manufacturing and processing site in the northern District of Baoshan, Shanghai. The site covers a total area of 40,300 sq.m and consists of 30 industrial buildings varying in age, condition and scale, with most still being used by glass-related industries. The owner, Shanghai Glass Co., aimed to upgrade the site and selected two buildings to become the Shanghai Museum of Glass to kick start the project. It is the first glass museum in China, and one of the first museums in China based on a modern, interactive exhibition concept. The museum covers an area of 5,000 sq.m spread over two existing and two new building sections hosting the museum exhibition space, a glass art gallery, several workshops for both artists and visitors, event and temporary exhibition spaces, a cafe and offices, storage and supporting facilities. The Shanghai Museum of Glass building is the first and central building of a glass, art, research and technology park branded G+ Glass Theme Park.

At the moment, the museum hosts 3 exhibitions and 4 galleries. There is a chance to see the hot glass performance, which promises to be impressive. Moreover, you could rent a hot glass studio and a blowing assistant to make your own glass piece of art!

Address:

Building 8, 685 Changjiang Xi Road,
