Inspired by the San Antonio River, 'Liquid Crystal' at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center intertwines the flows of water and people. The tower, composed of active digital liquid crystal panels, generates an undulating, shimmering effect by adjusting light transmission and reflection. The visual spectacle in the atrium lobby evolves continuously, influenced by the level of activity in the space.
