James Tichenor & Josh Walton, Rockwell Group: How To Tell Stories Through Social & Interactive Spaces
James Tichenor and Josh Walton are Co-chiefs at the LAB, a subsidiary from the well-known architecture firm the Rockwell Group. At PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON, the duo demonstrated how the future of architecture involves combining physical spaces with virtual inputs and outputs.
One example they gave was the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, where a lobby with no windows became a platform for interactive digital art. The bold columns were transformed into large LCD monitors, where the images were reflected off the glossy ceiling and floor, to create an almost mystical environment.
