AWARE — Studio for Architecture

http://www.aware-studio.com

Frankfurt, Germany
AWARE is a Studio for Architecture based in Frankfurt. We explore a design approach that engages the non-experts in the creative process. It uses the principles of crowd-sourcing, game design and digital fabrication to create an environment adaptable to the needs and preferences of the inhabitants. Our design tools are best suited for large residential complexes and can be applied by architectural offices as well as property developers and civic institutions.

Architecture made by 7,000,000,000 people with computer games and 3D-printing
Imagine a world where computer games and 3D-printing robots help you shape your surroundings.

At the beach an interesting dynamic is observed. New people arrive and find a spot they like, not too close to the others, but not too distant either. In the course of the day, the beach is portioned and re-organised into zones of leisure and pathways.

Architecture could be created in a similar, self-organising manner. We are surrounded by devices that change the temperature around us, clean our floors, and give us access to information.

A device’s range is far more important than a wall. A device’s range helps its owner appropriate a small portion of territory. Networks of devices shape the landscape we inhabit. It is ever-changing like the beach and allows a person to come or leave, while the space adapts. This continuous formation is carried out by 3D-printing robots.

The distribution of territory into a densely populated neighbourhood becomes a problem of arranging millions of devices. Solutions can be constructed by 7,000,000,000 people simultaneously using video games.
