Rhizome House


In the science of plants a rhizome is a modified subterranean root that often sends out roots and buds from it nodes. The rhizome also retains the ability to allow new buds to grow upwards, creating a structure above the ground. In Rhizome House from DPArchitects the underground structure is brought above the ground. It is a life size display of this root system.

The interactive work encourages you to enter it. Light responds to the visitor giving an experience that is familiar and foreign at the same time. A cool blue and then a bright pink light will make you wonder about environments, comfort, organic spaces and natural habitats.
