Artist and engineer Theo Jansen will be the keynote speaker for TEST – Teaching of Environment, Sustainability and Technology in Architecture & Design Conference. Jansen will explore the concept and workings of his extraordinary Strandbeest, constructed from rudimentary materials. These large mechanical sculptures respond intelligently to the elements, inhabiting the beaches of his native Holland like giant insects.
