Jon Goodbun, Filip Visnjic and Cordula Weisser from Working Architecture Group (WAG) have won this year's Workspace Group Urbantine Project competition with their submission Open Tables Ecology, an installation based around contemporary interaction theory, or Ubiquitous Computing.
Open Tables is an installation that recycles real architectural objects (such as fireplaces, doors, windows etc), and combines them with open source aggregator software, digital media and interactive technologies to create a real time, three dimensional interface for interacting and working with RSS news feeds and the web. It is a physical space, which contains bridges to the web, and which facilitates the navigation, selection and creation of ideas - engaging both the body and the mind of the co-designer (formerly known as user).
The Project will be featured as part of Tent London during the London Design Festival, September 18-21, 2008. See more details of the winning submission and shortlisted entries at urbantineproject.co.uk.
