Responsive Architecture: User-centered Interactions within the Hybridized Model of Control

  title={Responsive Architecture: User-centered Interactions within the Hybridized Model of Control},
  author={Tristan Sterk},
In the September 1969 issue of Architectural Design, Andrew Rabeneck wrote about the use of cybernetic devices within an automated architecture. He hypothesized that the concept of ‘flexibility’ was introduced to architecture because existing building technologies were inherently inflexible. He argued that architects should use cybernetic technologies to produce completely new types of increasingly flexible, user-centred, buildings. Three years later, Yona Friedman wrote about the changing… 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
Modes of interaction in computational architecture
This thesis is an enquiry into the importance and influence of interaction in architecture, the importance of which is observed through different modes of interaction occurring in various aspects ofExpand
Towards user centred design (UCD) in architecture based on immersive virtual environments
It is demonstrated that the transfer of the UCD approach to architectural planning combined with the provision of an adequate prototype can make a significant contribution towards an increase in quality and performance in building and construction projects. Expand
Shape Change in Responsive Architectural Structures: Current Reasons & Challenge
Shape control within architectural structures is a natural extension to the practice of engineering and architectural design, and currently represents a major technological and methodological stumbling block for architects, posing many challenges that have theoretical and practical origins. Expand
Developing an Integrated VR Infrastructure in Architectural Design Education
The role of teaching architectural design for developing a novel and contextual curriculum based on an analysis of student feedback is illustrated, suggesting that the perspicuity aspects of student interaction bare the risk of “complicated” and “confusing” software. Expand
Design process excludes users: the co-creation activities between user and designer
  • Ji-Yong Park
  • Computer Science, Engineering
  • Digit. Creativity
  • 2012
A user-evolving collaborative design process which is built on co-creation activities between designer and user, which allows the designers to holistically approach to the user needs through building a partnership with the users is proposed. Expand
Workshops for the 21st Century: Exploring the Role of Environments in Personal Fabrication Processes
Growing interest in personal fabrication has resulted in many ways to ideate, design, and prototype, in addition to studies of who a maker is and the challenges they face. Less attention, however,Expand
Prototyping a human-building interface with multiple mobile robots
A design exploration of a human-building interface (HBI) with multiple mobile robots serving as ‘physical pixels’, which investigates the latent possibilities of public interactive displays and media screens, potentially provoking interaction with existing built environments. Expand
Surface Dynamics: From dynamic surface to agile spaces
This paper presents an ongoing research into kinetic material system with the focus on non-mechanical actuation (shape memory alloy) and the structural and material behavior, and proposes an adaptive surface capable of altering its shape and forming small occupiable spaces that respond to external and internal influences and flows of information.

The Development and Valuation of Intelligent and Adaptive Building Systems
Energy consumption by buildings, especially high-rise buildings, has increased to the point that it has overtaken the industrial and transportation sectors (Perez-Lombard et al., 2008). ThisExpand
