‘Performance Design – Environmental Response’

Please look through the group folders to the left to see the extensive work done by the students.

The workshop explores responsive strategies and systems, which is in constant interaction with its physical environment.

Cross-disciplinary master students within the field of architecture and mediology are to investigate and create physical and digital kinetic models and systems enabling environmental adaptation with embedded censoring, translation of information and actuation.

The workshop is an intense series of lectures and tooling sessions, with successive experiments, leading to responsive models with growing complexity in terms of analytical performance and phenomenological expressions.

The aim is not only to investigate and create behavioural physical models, but equally to discuss and challenge our understanding of architectural changeability, dynamic behaviour, materiality and expression. How do we understand continuity and alterations in relation environment? How do we understand information and its transformation? Is architecture persistent or in persistent change?
