Sensing Places worked with Zaha Hadid Architects to create and illustrate scenarios for their final design. Our team explored the fluid exchange of information between computers, mobile devices, and environmental displays.

A component of the project included designing a sensor network for monitoring efficient energy consumption.

We also designed futuristic ATMs that free bank customers from the claustrophobia of small rooms by instead enveloping a temporary private space around them with a fog screen. This allows their information to stay secure while not isolating them from the surrounding environment.

We contributed to the re-design of the trading floor, using seamless information exchange among traders to increment efficiency and financial returns.
