Ossa Waw 2011, a convention for architecture students from Poland and other European countries. Our workshop called Mapping Urban Phenomena sought to design and construct active ‘synapses’ for the urban environment. Image to the left is the project ‘Grass’ which communicates local information about temperature (color) and wind conditions (flex) through this simple material and sensor activated installation. The prototype was supposed to be placed numerous places in the urban environment, allowing for occupants to stay informed of other local climatic conditions. Other projects like The Scent of Location would through the phenomena Scent Memory, give occupants of the space an experience of dislocation through the use of scent.
