Do buildings dream?

The side of the Hotel St. George, in Viale Tunisia, Milan has been transformed into a living, breathing, dreaming creature by a group called Abstract Groove. They have put up a temporary video installation that let's the building come alive. They describe it as "an audiovisual experiment of perceptive transformation in architecture, through abstract narration, which will show the building as a screen and protagonist simultaneously. Imagine the faade of a building could have a brain and a conscience; consequently it could sleep and dream. Imagine that these surreal forms of life have a characteristic to let loose, during the REM sleep period, a visible transposition of their dreams."This is exactly my concept of good design: taking the ignored object (a building's wall) and forcing us to reevaluate it in a new way.
