Create Your Own Sustainable Building

Designing a modern building involves making a myriad of decisions, all of which have an impact on its sustainability rating. Create Your Own Sustainable Building is a large-scale, immersive environment where visitors undertake this challenge, and are rewarded by seeing their designs for an office, block of flats, or a house build instantly in front of them.

By interacting with a digital blueprint on large format touchscreens, visitors can discover and see for themselves the impact their choices are having. From selecting the type of light switch to install, right up to installing the most advanced type of thermal recovery heating, every decision influences the appearance and energy rating of the building.

Up to three players can use the exhibit at the same time, and bystanders in the space can influence the responsive environment by moving around the space. The realtime 3D graphics includes trees swaying, birds flying and a zeppelin that tracks visitors' motion around the space.

This large-scale immersive environment consists of three large format touchscreens, three HD projectors, and seven separate systems, synchronizing with each other using realtime network messaging. Realtime computer vision is used to detect motion in the space. Each of the touchscreen consoles is launched by the user swiping their RFID based smart-ticket, and the seamless design of the projections creates a single vista that fills 3 sides of the room.
