Lincoln University brought an updated version of their showstopping design from RHS Chelsea in 2013 The Innovative design brings social media technology to GardenUp. The articulated steel panels on the wall are driven by tweets from a website!
University of Lincoln, Lincoln School of Architecture – Social Media Garden
The University of Lincoln’s show garden entry into this years Garden Up event in Sheffield is based upon a research project within the University’s Schools of Architecture and Computer Science that is exploring the idea/question, ‘is architecture able to reflect and map human emotions’, the garden is conceived as an articulating landscape which sits vertically and horizontally, the movements within this landscape simultaneously reveal what the landscape covers and remap the landscape itself. The control mechanism for this is a computer application that monitors Twitter for information defined by us, for example reactions to the Garden Up Show, it then translates this information into movements of the garden’s mechanical landscape.
