Internationally renowned architect Alisa Andrasek was a special guest of RMIT Design Hub Gallery, in partnership with RMIT School of Architecture and Design. Andrasek’s interactive installation Bloom was on show in conjunction with The Future is Here, an exhibition touring from the London Design Museum.
The urban toy, distributed social game and collective ‘gardening’ experience was first installed in London, as part of the capital’s city-wide celebration during the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. Bloom sought the engagement of people to construct its organic, blooming formations - so come to Design Hub Gallery and play!
Bloom is designed and developed by Alisa Andrasek and Jose Sanchez from The Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL.
The Future is Here was accompanied by a full program of associated talks and workshops, including an opportunity for local Melbourne design firms to come and play with Bloom.
