The aim of this assignment was to create an live-interactive installation using forces as parameters using Kangaroo as main engine. The main goal was to build a simple interface where the user can “play” with inputs such as attractors, sliders, functions and time to transform an object in space.

The selected location for the installation was the IaaC rooftop area.

The main idea was to compute different shapes with a single concept. Indeed, every mesh doesn’t touch the floor; in this way, the lightweight structures connected to the parapet can play a shading role.
