TEXTILE SPACE COURSE

This is a project developed with design students of the seminar Textile Space offered as a workshop in the university’s School of Architecture + Design. The project provided a responsive environment and a framework for the Tech-or-Treat exhibit organized and sponsored by ICAT. 

 

Aiming to discover effective implementations of responsive technologies in architecture that heighten the awareness of the spatial experience, the design turned the forty-foot dark cubic space into an environment of labyrinthian qualities that revealed content and enabled knowledge to be constructed only through the lived experience of it, and relative to the degree of interaction of the visitor.
