Responsive Technologies

Areti Markopoulou

By incorporating responsive technologies in built “habitats” architecture acquires the ability to tie its shape directly to its environment or to its users’ needs.

Which are, then, the new principles of space design and construction?

We are more than ever enabled to get free from purely aesthetic creations and explore “responsive architecture as the natural product of the integration of computing power into built structures” [1].
