The studio delivers as they say unimaginable technology to the world – in the most literal way. With practices in Rotterdam and Shanghai, he develops innovative, interactive landscapes that are accomplished through the objective of pulling technology ‘out of the screen’ and integrating it into the real world.

The key to accomplishing this task is his Dutch attitude of artist-entrepreneur, which he considers equal parts “priest and entrepreneur” in order to perfectly merge technology and creativity. Through the creation of social designs that instinctively respond to sound and movement, he is able to pursue the widest possibilities of technological innovation.

Roosegaarde is best known for his internationally awarded projects such as ‘Dune’,‘Intimacy 2.0’ and ‘Sustainable Dance Floor’. In 2008 he developed the ‘Sustainable Dance Floor’ which is the interactive dance floor that generates electricity through the motion of dancing. The interactive technology creates an environment in which dancers are sensually engaged with sustainability.Together with the infrastructure company Heijmans, he is currently developing ‘Smart Highways’ which are interactive and sustainable roads.

Roosegaarde’s professional mission is to create the missing links between bullshit and beauty, between fantasy and budget. He believes that The Netherlands must lose its “yes, but...” attitude and “look for the missing links”. This link between between ideology and technology, is what Roosegaarde calls “techno-poetry”.
