In the video below: The HygroScope, commissioned for the especially for the Pompidou and gets its debut during the Multiversites Creatives:
The project “HygroScope – Meteorosensitive Morphology” by Achim Menges in collaboration with Steffen Reichert explores a novel mode of responsive architecture based on the combination of material inherent behaviour and computational morphogenesis. The dimensional instability of wood in relation to moisture content is employed to construct a climate responsive architectural morphology. Suspended within a humidity controlled glass case the model opens and closes in response to climate changes with no need for any technical equipment or energy. Mere fluctuations in relative humidity trigger the silent movement. The material structure itself is the machine.
