This year people were able to see an interactive architectural installation aka the BEACH. The installation is contained within an enclosure. It is built out of white construction materials.

2. Kendra Haste's Wire Animals, UK

Kendra works with layers of painted galvanized wire atop steel armature in order to create faithful reproductions of large and small creatures (both for public installations and private collections). She is truly capable of creating “the sense of movement and life, of contour and volume, the contrasts of weight and lightness, of solidity and transparency—values that I find in my natural subjects.”
3. Floating Flower Garden, Japan
The breathtaking floating flower garden is filled with living flowers that float up and down to recreate the illusion of being in the space. When you get close to the flower-filled space, the flowers rise upwards all at once, thus creating a hemispherical space with the viewer at its center. So, the whole room is filled with flowers (over 2,300 floating flowers are blooming in the space), but there is always a hemispherical space around you, so you are free to move wherever you want. Sounds like magic, doesn't it?
