Living Architecture Systems Group:
Can architecture integrate living functions? How can we design kinetic, living architecture that engages with visitors during extended interactions and enhances human experience in an immersive environment? How do humans respond to these evolving interactions, in a process of mutual adaptation? Answers to these research questions could offer practical methods for working with our increasingly complex and fragile built environment. The Living Architecture Systems Group (LASG) is bringing together pioneering researchers and industry partners in a multidisciplinary research cluster dedicated to developing built environments with qualities that come close to life-environments that can move, respond, and learn, and which are adaptive and empathic towards their inhabitants. The LASG partnership is focused on developing innovative technologies, new critical aesthetics, and integrative design working methods, helping equip a new generation of designers with critical next-generation skills and critical perspectives for working with complex environments. The conceptual approaches and technical functions required for this work exceed the expertise of individual research disciplines. New technologies, new aesthetic languages and new interdisciplinary working methods are needed in order to guide this complex work. The LASG has leading expertise in the field and its members are positioned to make key contributions to new generations of this work. This revolutionary new research and creation program has the potential to transform the role of public architecture and to renew our relationship with the environment.
