Moritz Behrens is an architect, interaction designer and researcher combining architecture with digital technologies to explore the notion of architecture within mediated urban spaces. Previously, as part of the EPSRC funded Screens in the Wild project at the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture (London), he conducted intense research into urban screens for community purposes.
More recently and in collaboration with Arup, Moritz designed and deployed the interactive ‘Sentiment Cocoon’, which collects the feelings of building occupants and visualises them through the medium of light evolving from a light-weight translucent structure. Amongst others his interactive media installations have been invited by Verve Cultural (Sao Paulo) and the EU funded Connecting Cities Network, displayed at the Ars Electronica Festival (Linz) and produced for the European Capital of Culture 2014 (Riga, Latvia) and Media Architecture Biennale 2014 (Aarhus).
