Leonardo Features Experimental, Responsive Architecture

A portion of "Hylozoic Ground" in final stages of construction at Leonardo

(KCPW News) An experimental piece of architecture just installed in The Leonardo on Library Square isn’t just meant to be looked at – it also responds to its environment and even to human touch. Canadian architect Philip Beesley is the creator of Hylozoic Ground, a meshwork creation visitors will see when The Leonardo opens on Saturday, October 8th. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson spoke with Beesley, asking him how he would describe Hylozoic Ground to someone who has never seen it.
