This paper describes the use of composite urethane elastomers for constructing responsive structures at an architectural scale. It explains the underlying material research and design criteria for constructing deployable columns that are responsive to carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and are used to reconfigure and pattern the space of inhabitation. 
Using adaptive architecture to support Yoga practices: Social considerations for design
The aims to apply the technology of Adaptive Architecture to the practice of Yoga, in which a core aspect is controlled breathing, are discussed. Expand
The Agency of Responsive Envelopes: Interaction, Politics and Interconnected Systems
This article positions the territory of responsive envelopes within the context of contemporary disciplinary questions surrounding the politics of the architectural envelope on one hand, and theExpand
Whirlstools: kinetic furniture with adaptive affordance
It is argued that by drawing on the psychological theory of affordance, low-cost kinetic architectural systems can be designed that nonetheless bring about beneficial, sizable changes in human behavior. Expand
Interrogating Interactive and Responsive Architecture: The Quest of a Technological Solution Looking for an Architectural Problem
Interactive Architecture and Responsive Architecture are provocative fields of investigation and have potentially disruptive and far reaching effects for architecture. However it can be argued thatExpand
Adaptive Architecture: regulating human building interaction*
The emergence and history of Adaptive Architecture is comprehensively unpack, reflecting on the current state of the art and policy foundations supporting it, and how it will recalibrate the nature of human-building interaction. Expand
Towards Atmospheric Interfaces
A preliminary taxonomy to bring the condition of air into the foreground of human perception and provide an overview of different inputs and outputs that enable an interaction with the air is introduced. Expand
Towards Habitable Bits: Digitizing the Built Environment
A review of this nascent body of work at integrating digital technology into architectural space is provided, weaving together the disparate streaks of technical development into a consilient research trajectory that can be interpreted as a modern-day extension to Weiser's original vision of Ubiquitous Computing. Expand
Embodied interactions with adaptive architecture
We discuss increasingly behaviour-responsive adaptive architecture from an embodied point of view. Especially useful in this context is an understanding of embodied cognition called ‘the 4EExpand
WABI: Facilitating synchrony between inhabitants of adaptive architecture
Research is presented that investigates how a new prototype of digitally-driven adaptive architecture called WABI facilitates behavioural synchrony between its inhabitants, and designed three interaction modes that each feature a unique mapping and processing of physiological data emanating from inhabitants. Expand
Reciprocal Control in Adaptive Environments
This paper explains the two different paths leading participants to behavioural change and applies the model of secondary control, an adjustment of one’s own expectations to maintain the pretence of control, to describe conscious cognitive adaptation to the changing environment. Expand


Mies van der Rohe : a critical biography
"Mies van der Rohe: A Critical Biography" is a major rewriting and expansion of Franz Schulze's acclaimed 1985 biography, which was the first full treatment of the master architect and is still todayExpand
I portrayed a life of Jiuju G. Kasai who dedicated his whole life to the advancement of friendly relations between the United States and Japan. I would like to confirm the fact that he was both theExpand
Design for a Brain
Ashby accepts, as fact, that the nervous system behaves adaptively and assumes that it is, in its essentials, mechanistic, and examines dynamic systems from the standpoint of rigorous scientific —dominantly mathematical—logic until he has evolved a theoretical counterpart of brain functioning.
