Master of Architecture thesis
A series of research projects were conducted into the possibilities of creating life-like intelligence within architectural spaces. Various methods for applying behaviors to physical environments are explored, culminating in the design and creation of a mutually interactive website and physical installation. This installation allows users of the physical space to affect the experience of those entering the space virtually, and vice versa. Custom programmed script allow web visitors to manipulate the atmosphere of the physical space, and experience the effects through multiple views of streaming video and audio. The installation attempts to give a glimpse into the future of integrating information systems with architecture.
