A living piece of architecture


A living piece of architecture


Future architecture has to become kinetic and sensitive to interact not only with the environment but also with human emotions.

A living piece of architecture is a conceptual utopian design for housing beyond smart homes, intended to overcome existing dualisms such as digital and material, artificial and natural. The kinetic, photosensitive and adaptive model shows a type of architecture that constantly changes its morphology to adapt not only to the environment but also to human emotions. The shape, size and speed of adaptation are controlled by an evolutionary optimization algorithm, which is a bionic technology inspired by nature. This algorithm follows biological criteria for life that have been transferred to architecture. Participants are invited to stimulate the architecture by setting it to their mood and by changing the energy and light sources, as the building is intended to evolve from the climate given in this way - like plants or animals do.
