'Yakuza Lou' is the work of Los Angeles architect Eddy Sykes. Because of the way Sykes combines technology and nature, it is an example of 21st Century ‘high-tech/high touch’ design.
The self-articulating landscape uses hydrodynamics, motors and growth patterns to systematically redefine a structure of octagonal vegetative mats. A hinge-mounted motor drives the octagonal origami-inspired form.
The landscape works in concert with an artificial Cumulonimbus cloud that also changes over time, another allusion to the origami fortune-telling toy that appears to have been the muse for the project.
