Walk into W - New York on Lexington Ave, W San Francisco near Union Square, W Paris - Opéra and you'll find a towering, gleaming aluminum sculpture that looks like a futuristic canopy or some mysteriously lit cave. What you're seeing is Aqueous Mass, a cutting-edge piece of environmental architecture that was designed by the architecture firm Gage / Clemenceau.
Aqueous Mass boasts a biosympathetic environment that's activated when you step inside and interact with one of the three Intel-inspired Ultrabooks™ inside. You can learn about Four Stories, a short film series from Intel and W Hotels with Roman Coppola and The Directors Bureau, on the Ultrabooks themselves by watching the films and going behind the scenes of each.
Watch Mark Foster Gage, a principle architect of the installation for Intel and W Hotels, explain his inspiration here.
