Romy Randev has designed a piece of temporary architecture for the Berkeley-based contemporary lighting studio. It achieves a glowing, geometric surface that's attached to the existing building and when no longer required, it can easily be removed.

Building rules prevented Looma from permanently altering their exterior appearance so a temporary solution was in order. Paired with the facade is an interactive LED light show that changes colors, using parametric design and digital fabrication tools to create an astounding effect.

It draws visitor attention, solves an architectural problem and creates a likeness for temporary buildings that hasn't been seen before. This project is a true advancement in temporary architecture and creates depth and texture in a building front.
