Responsive Environments

Interactivity and interactive content has become an extension of our bodies and surroundings. In recent years architects have had a growing interest in integrating dynamic media in architectural and urban spaces. Many of the projects that have been implemented usually take cues from on-screen interactive experiences and are applied to the built environment. The results are usually an exercises in scale at best.Responsive Environments explores the potentials of body-centric interactive spaces as a building block of the design architectural spaces. The seminar goes through series of case studies and recent emergent theories around responsive and interactive spaces to understand the elements that make it successful. It also takes a hands-on and an in-depth look at different technologies that enable interactivity. The outcome of the course is prototype of a full scale interactive installation.
