An exhibit by renowned Canadian architect and artist, Philip Beasley, is slated to open at the ROM in early June. Beasley’s approach to structure and space, reflected in the emerging field of responsive architecture, is a feast for the eyes and the senses. Beasley creates a metabolic architecture whereby man-made structures are interpreted not as inanimate, fixed objects, but as living, breathing entities capable of regeneration and growth. A vast canopy of glass, polymers and metals float and sway in reaction to the viewer’s movements below while LED’s flash and mild, gentle scents subtly emerge. It is a veritable feast for the senses.
Beasley has joined forces once again with Dutch Haute Couture designer, Iris Van Herpen in presenting their collaborative installations. Beasley’s “Transforming Space” and Van Herpen’s ”Transforming Fashion” can be seen concurrently at the ROM, from June 2- October 8, 2018. For more information on the exhibit, click here.
