What happens when architecture and interaction design collide to create everyday performance? Playing to the individual and to crowds, and changing the performative repertoire in real-time can manifest itself through a diverse palette of kinetic, animated, time-based and sometimes smart materials. We can choreograph real and imagined spaces. This choreography is explored through different mechanisms – wireframing, storyboarding and real world prototyping – and plays back through accidental and inferred interaction between humans and machines. To what use can we put architecture that entertains; are there sub narratives or is this about creating purely environmental spectacle?
