Eliciting Environments | Actuating Response
Eliciting Environments | Actuating Response

Current computational, sensing and fabrication technologies provide new opportunities for architects and designers to embed intelligence and responsive behavior directly into architectural matter. Such design tactics not only elicit new sensibilities and socio-aesthetic desires, but also instrumentalize new understandings of hierarchies, networks and organization of building systems controls. Responsive technologies play a critical role in advancing the evolving relationships between humans, constructed environments, administrative controls and natural systems. Systems that mitigate human-machine-environment interaction are evolving to encompass more complex methods of collecting and managing data that can produce subtle differences in feedback and response. 

From surveillance strategies to user-initiated interaction and hackable surfaces to locally controlled responsiveness within design processes, the computerization of our environment provokes a series of critical questions about technology and design-thinking. New technologies directly affect design methodologies and thus design education. ELICITING ENVIRONMENTS | ACTUATING RESPONSE will engage the practitioners who are defining future possibilities for sensory intelligence in architectural design, to present, discuss and speculate on the role and potential for actuated responsiveness in imminent built environments.
