Hotel Habitat, Barcelona

Hotel Habitat is a hotel by Enric Ruiz Geli, Max Zinnecker with James Clar with its most significant characteristic as a 3.000 m2 stainless steel mesh as a tensegrity structure offsetted from the concrete structure and glass facade.
The design concept is presented as ´your room in a tree´, where each leaf on the steel mesh consists of one photovoltaic cell, a battery, CPU and a RGB LED which creates an artificial light cloud around the hotel.

How it performs:
The ‘energy mesh’ has individual nodes with photosensors that collect the sun’s energy during the day and at night gives off a specific color according to the amount of energy collected reflected in an ´energy diagram´. The mesh consists of 500 tri-color LEDs controlled by a PIC microprocessor making the skin a thermometer as a ´performance architecture´; an architecture of particles.
There is no central computer controlling the light, but the appearence is reflected in the overall expression of the performance of each individual particle.
