Interactive Architecture dot Org

Interactive Architecture dot Org explores emerging practices within architecture that aim to merge digital technologies & virtual spaces with tangible and physical spatial experiences. Maintained by Ruairi Glynn at the Bartlett School of Architecture, the website is in the form of a blog and focuses on enabling architecture to act not just as an interface between people participating in interactions but also as an active participant in its own right. It’s all quite hard to describe, but is a lot more interesting than it sounds, and shades off into areas as diverse as textiles, interaction design, musical climbing walls and energy-generating dance floors. It includes links to downloadable resources of interest to artists and architects.
