Bridging the gap between Architecture and Technology.
Architecture and design are in a perpetual state of evolution, intersecting in a dance as they change the way we experience the world around us. The American Institute of Architects is devoted to improving the quality of the field, and pushing the creativity of architecture. Much as AIA is committed to architecture, Bluewater is committed to tech, and to pushing the creativity of our industry.
For the 2016 Celebration of Architecture we were asked to provide a showcase piece, something that would provide a view into the intersection of design, architecture and technology. This year in particular marked an important milestone, as Detroit just received a UNESCO City of Design designation. The result was a memorable experience, a memory, an inspiring moment in time. We called this moment Windows to Detroit.
This project featured two young artists: Pianist Ivan Moshchuk and Ballerina Sarah Sibole.
Ivan and Sarah were not physically performing in the same room, but by using “windows,” they were brought together in a new way through technology. The room that Ivan was in housed a live cast to the room where Sarah was dancing, and vice versa. As a result of this unique showcase, organic and inorganic components were brought together flawlessly. It was a true display of the intersection of architecture and technology.
