The Architectural Brain – Attempting to Restore the Lost Connection - Mind, Body and Place.

Re-Establishing Connection


The Architectural Brain – Attempting to Restore the Lost Connection - Mind, Body and Place.
In the future architecture will be generated, curated and remain in a constant and continuous 'conversation' with the bodies that occupy and author that environment.

Our networked society now helps to facilitate our mediated experience of the world and each other. This technology has become a force of control, creating a society inflated by stress, isolation and confusion. The body, the mind, and its environment now sit disconnected to one another with little, if any regards to time and space. The challenge is to find new ways to complement, extend and enrich the body, mentally, physically and socially, reconnecting the body, the mind and its environment.

Using measurements of the ways that the body performs to provide triggers for shared experiences. Generating audiovisual environments from individual and collective biometric data. Allowing users to explore and interact with their unconscious biological responses. Giving us a richer understanding of the multisensory nature of the architectural experience, re-establishing the connections between the body, the mind and its environment.
