This digital publication presents H2Oexpo, an immersive environment designed by Lars Spuybroek that was capable of invoking water abstractly through volume, sloping ground planes, dynamic lighting, projected patterns and images, sound and other kinesthetic means.
The project, located in a recreational area in the southwest of the Netherlands called WaterLand, was commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management as a centre for visitors to learn about and experience the nation’s relationship with water. Spuybroek’s design merges a sinuous topological tubular space with digital images that wrap around floor, wall and ceiling surfaces.
As part of a multiyear project that includes three exhibitions on twenty-five seminal projects, the CCA and Greg Lynn are publishing a series of digital publications recording conversations with key architects. The epubs are heavily illustrated with photos, drawings, renderings, videos, PDFs, and interactive 3D models.
