The public garden as an auto-regulated living system

During the day, the public space organizes and distributes visitors in a natural way (according to sunlight/shades, calm zones and types of activity). At night time the lighting installation proposed an interactive system using infrared sensors that allowed the visitor’s flow, rhythm and density to be redirected, through welcome and not-so-welcome situations generated by the intensity of the light panels. At the end, the light was part of a living cellular system.
