Toronto Architecture Firm Design Workshop Architects Asks How Bright Is Our Future With Installation For IDS18

IDS visitors will enter a dark enclosure to encounter a forest of blade-like fixtures that ask them to react to the most promising and terrifying changes that will inform our future. Each of these “trees” offers the viewer surfaces printed on the skin of the tree that respond to the viewers touch, and record how they view that topic: either as one of hope or one of fear.

Data gathered from all the inputs contributes to an illuminated meter that displays where each individual, as well as the collective result puts us on that spectrum of fear and hope. The results are projected onto a screen, each participant sees that they influence the future, but they must confront the reality that we will all create this future together. This immersive installation aims to start a dialogue about recognizing change, and get people thinking about what’s next in the future of design.

Toronto based, Design Workshop Architects is a full-service architectural and interiors consulting firm in all sectors, including commercial, residential and civic projects of all scales.
