    Vortex-shaped wooden bridge serves as a live visualization of energy consumption

    Parisian firm 1024 Architecture has wrapped a pedestrian footbridge in raw wood scaffolding and interactive LED lights to exhibit the site’s energy footprint at the Darwin Ecosystem Project’s green building in Bordeaux, France.

    The Vortex sculpture connects two buildings within a business complex, which was converted from old barracks into a sustainable hub in 2012 by the Ecosystem Project.

    12 strips of LED tubing illuminate the fragmented structure and react to the surrounding environment using MadMapper software developed by 1024 Architecture.

    The lights dim and brighten in sync with the trembling movement of the footbridge, the music being played, as well as the energy being consumed within the venue.

    Below the architectural artwork is a communal courtyard, where workers and members of the public can meet, dine and observe the real time lighting installation.
