Located in Lille, France, the Lotus Dome by Studio Roosegaarde appears to come to life as visitors interact with the piece.

This installation consists of a dome composed of metallic pieces that are flower shaped. The flowers featured in this piece are made of a material developed by designers, called 'lotus foil,' that seemingly reacts to changes in light. Lotus foil is composed of polyester film material put together in layers.

Lotus Dome also features sensors that aid in the detection of human movement and interaction to make a piece that is seemingly alive and responsive. This installation boasts a rare quality of mimicking life while bringing people to its stunning background space of decorate church.
