Inter-Activating Environment is a MSC2 Desgin Studio Program in HyperBody TU Delft.
The intention of the studio is to mainly discuss and explore the inter-activeness
between body movement and space.
IAE is directly connected with an European Union Project called METABODY, which the Hyperbody team is currently engaged with. Within this EU project, Hyperbody’s agenda is to develop a pro-active architectural pavillion, which will, in real-time communicate with its immediate context (body movement, directionality of movement, micro-gestures, environmental parameters etc) via multi-modal interactions (sound, light, movement of the structure etc). Currently a fully robotic structural loop is being developed by the Hyperbody staff in collaboration with the Delft Robotics Institute and other consortium members of the EU Project. The structural loop and its movements will thus serve as a constraint, within which the students shall conceive interactive skins/bodies.(http://re.hyperbody.nl/index.php/Msc2IAE:frontpage)
