What if we could bring remote nature to the artificial tunnel?

Future tunnel

MAY 2018

We created a virtual forest at the opening event of the Tokyo Gaikan Expressway Matsudo Interchange.

Corresponding to the voice from visitors, the white tubes create particles to the ceiling of the tunnel and connect it with the forests of Mt.Fuji. They also send the voices of the visitors to the forest to enable interaction with wildlife and mountain echos.

In future cities, advanced technologies can be connected with nature in new ways to enable societies better coexists with nature.
