Now that’s an eye-catching building

The Center Pompidou in Metz, France has constructed a building onto which the design group AntiVJ has projected an eye-catching display that is based on the hexagonal structures found on the ocean sea bed by an organism called the paleodictyon nodosum.

PALEODICTYON from ANTIVJ is a visual label on Vimeo.

In the next video the creators talk about how they envisaged representing the organism’s life cycle on the building with light and sound and shape.

    So, they threw a tarp over a building? I often wonder if such weird shapes could be utilized as well as a standard rectangle, or if it’s just for show.
