Cristina R. Maier is currently developing a research project, initiated at Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway and KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture, Campus Sint-Lucas Brussels/Ghent, Belgium. While working on several projects at distinguished Architecture and Landscape Architecture firms in Norway like Saunders Architecture, landskap DESIGN, LJB, she became more aware of the added value of a transdisciplinary approach in practice and subsequently in research.

Interactive Design


Designing Sensorial Dialogical Spaces
We are no longer talking about a “static” Architecture, since innovations as well as today’s needs influence it.

Today, Technology and Design are main topics and “Moreover, seen through a more comprehensive natural lens, technology and design become inseparable.” (Brownell, Swackhamer, 2015) Technology and Design are also at the core of a new field that is Media Architecture that basically deals with an interactive / responsive / adaptive feature of Architecture where both user and climate influence and trigger the appearance of a changing design. We are no longer talking about a “static” Architecture, since innovations as well as today’s needs influence it and so a shift that will become a paradigm in the future.

“Interactive Design. Designing Sensorial Dialogical Spaces.” is tackling these current topics, using a transdisciplinary approach and collaboration platforms between designers / artists / engineers / sociologists / biologists.



Testing Optical Fiber SR PMMA Ø8mm, 49xØ0.75mm, inserted into Energy Efficient Light Generator FL 500.

Testing the link between the Motion Sensors / Light Generators / Control System.

Stainless Steel Mirror component reflecting the surroundings.

Optical Fiber Mesh ready and positioned on top of Stainless Steel Mirror component.

iLIGHT in Workshop Preset Mode. The Light Intensity through each OpticalFiber Layer could be controlled via mobile, through Zumtobel LITECOM and special App. There were different Preset Modes created, Working 100% Light / Writing 80% Light / Meeting 60% Light / Workshop 40% Light, and there was also the option for turning it On / Off, each or all OpticalFiber Layers.
