ABOUT THE PROJECT

While user-driven customization experiences are becoming increasingly commonplace, barriers to their mainstream adoption remain, as well as critical questions surrounding the aesthetics and politics of their implementation. This work is premised on the idea that re-imagining design processes as highly inclusive of, and partially directed by, users, has the potential to enable practitioners in architecture and product design to build on and help shape a growing movement toward collaborative creation. It documents a series of concepts and a prototype for a novel design workflow enabled by playful multi-modal “interactors” linked to materially- informed parametric descriptions which can be produced physically through digital fabrication methods.

This work is detailed in two papers:
[Y]OURS - Distributing Design Agency Through Playful Multi-Modal Interactors
Architectural Adaptables Exploring Multi-Modal Design Interactors and Biometrically-Responsive Spaces
