Blue Print is an attempt to bring attention to walkable cities, where pedestrian activity is encouraged and highlighted through interactivity. Blue Print is a series of four permanent interactive installations along Brighton Boulevard in Denver, Colorado. The sculptural forms for the project are inspired by the Colorado Rockies. The shape of the perforations are inspired by the Blue Columbine flower and displayed in various stages of bloom. The intention is to create a project which has sculptural beauty during the daytime that transforms into an interactive lighting experience during the evening. The embedded LEDs are illuminated through the floral pattern and respond to bike and pedestrian activity by animating and creating an imprint or impression of the passerby, hence the name Blue Print.
Blue Print could not have been possible without the contribution of a wide varieties of partners with varied expertise. The project was design engineered and fabricated by the design-built architecture firm Raw Creative. Interaction, lighting design and fabrication was handled by Dispersion.
