Digital technologies continue to proliferate, enabling ever smarter devices, materials and space to change the way we interact with our built environment. While smarter materials, devices, and space can be pervasively embedded in our built environment, it is likely to change the way we live and how buildings perform.
This lecture provides an overview of smart space and interactive architecture relating to the design and implementation of technology-empowered living labs at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in Taiwan. The NCKU architecture living labs create new spaces to ignite creativity and interactivity, including Green Classroom, Interactive Studio, Robotic Architecture, Smart Home, and Augmented Garden. Examples of some research projects are presented to demonstrate sustainable, sensing, and responsive capabilities of smart space and interactive architecture.
