These Flowers Bloom When People Stand under Them

(Photos: Dor Kedmi)

HQ Architects designed this unique shade for pedestrians in Vallero Square in Jerusaelm, Israel. It's called "Warde." These flower sculptures are equipped with sensors and air compressors. When someone stands under them, the fabric blossoms unfold and inflate, providing relief from the sun. 

You can see more photos and a video at Contemporist. The flowers are especially lovely at night when the built-in lights activate.
