Having a Conversation with Architecture

Joseph Choma's Thesis at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Reactive intelligent architecture which adapts and transforms in real time, has the ability to become an extension of one's body and can be shared with the embodiments of others. Architecture of this nature is not purely servile but also initiates the cybernetic conversation between man and machine and the rest of the world. Machine initiated conversations through responsive systems stimulate a less predictable, and more unconscious, and instinctive interaction. Epistemic analysis of these behaviors reveals new defining thresholds about individual embodiments of personal space.
