Mass Studies, a Korean architecture design firm, constructed the Air Forest for Denver’s annual Dialog:City, a meeting of minds to create interactive products for urban areas. The Air Forest is made to work with, and not against, its environment, allowing for wind, weather, and the sun to shift it. The easy set-up (all that is required to do is set the anchors) and interactive light display inside the 35 hexagonal pillars allows for shade, visual texture, and a mimicry of the surrounding environment. And because it’s not a permanent adjustment, we may well see the Air Forest at concerts and festivals in the years to come.
