Designers Use Illuminated Drones To Create Waves Around Elbphilharmonie Hamburg
The iconic Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, designed by renowned architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, is a contemporary symbol of the city of Hamburg. The building is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year in style with a dazzling light installation. Designed by Studio DRIFT, Breaking Waves uses hundreds of illuminated drones to create floating ripples of light around the structure.

Interactive Projections Transform Historic Japanese Garden Into a Candy-Colored Kaleidoscope
Kairakuen is referred to as one of the “Three Great Gardens of Japan,” alongside Kenrokuen Garden in Kanazawa and Korakuen Garden in Okayama. Teamlab has installed several interactive digital works across the park's extensive grounds, utilizing an 800-year-old giant tree, 1,500 plum trees, a bamboo grove, pine trees, azaleas, and even a fallen tree. These works transform natural sites—which have been around since the end of the Edo Period in 1842—through projections of light, moving illustrations, and sound.
