Philip Beesley's 'Amatria' unveiled at Indiana University

Monday, April 23, 2018

Amatria is a living, protected space of vales, canopies and membranes composed of hundreds of thousands of microprocessors, prototype cells and gently swaying Mylar fronds.​ Amatria was recently installed under the sunlit glass atrium on the fourth floor of Luddy Hall, the new home to most of the departments and programs in the Indiana University School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering.

Congratulations to Philip Beesley, current Waterloo Architecture students who contributed to Amatria - Nathanael Scheffler, Richard Mui, Luke Kimmerer, and Mengdie Zhang, Jeffrey Kwok - and many more volunteers.

An internationally known architect whose work has been featured at the prestigious Venice Biennale, as well as many other sites across the globe, Beesley is renowned for the use of cutting-edge technologies and materials -- sensor arrays, 3-D printed materials and Internet-connected objects -- to create enormous works of art that gently move or react as people pass near or through them.
