The first real postal system is said to have been developed by the Persian emperor Cyrus the Great (c. 550 BC) after his conquest of Media. Today, media plays a central role in people’s life on a global scale. At Maurer United, we are in search for a new integration of media and architecture. Some references.
In cooperation with graffiti artists Delta (Boris Tellegen) and Zedz, Maurer United developed Graffiti Related Architecture. The designs of the urban interventions were never built, but game platforms helped to visualize the experience of walking through a 3D graffiti piece.
For Amsterdam Mediamatic, Maurer United developed the Colabar installation. Fifty brands of cola were available at the bar. Also, a game was developed that enables the player to act like a bubble in a glass of cola.
