Responsible Responsiveness


Towards Critical Discourse on Responsive Architecture

Responsible Responsiveness


Towards Critical Discourse on Responsive Architecture
Can responsiveness become integral part of architecture with cultural impact instead of being merely savvy add-on?

Urge for the responsiveness within architecture, as a nurtured paradox, has been present throughout the history. It has recently been boosted by the digital revolution and changes in cultural context driven by mantra of sustainability.

Lots of mad-scientist ideas, countless exuberant prototypes and miles of algorithmic code are being exponentially produced at the architectural schools and engaging professional practices worldwide. While on the other hand there is limited architectural production able to claim architectural excellence and provoking wider cultural impact at the level of the multiple public communities.

Critical discourse on the responsiveness is ready to blossom at the ripe territory of the vibrant global production. Therefore organization of a series of roundtables, exhibitions and workshops is suggested in search of the responsible common-sense responsiveness between non-functional obsoleteness and euphoric sensual pollution.


1 Learning from (r)evolution.

2 Architecture moving from a tool of authoritative manipulation towards a catalyst of processes.

3 Responsiveness within spatial and time scales. How to evaluate its architectural impact on socio-cultural collective sphere?

4 Responsive cohesion between people and the environment (subjective, objective and collective) means responsible synchronizing of human ontological oscillations (physical, social and collective) within anthropic habitat as the looping negotiation between the domination and the anarchy.

5 Possible diagram of the responsible responsiveness. User engagement triggers operational effect produced by simple means with embedded responsiveness. It is dynamic and variable in employment of natural processes. Yet elegant and poetic.
