Media architecture is a new discipline within design and architecture that gives architecture a new communicative dimension by integrating digital media. Through the exchange of communicated contents, medialised architecture has the possibility to change the appearance of your environment.
Our research in Media Architecture
The interaction of digital media gives added value to the interaction between man and space and serves to transfer emotional and content-related messages. Space interacts with the world around it: artificial light adapts itself to daylight and the well-being of the individual, facades and surfaces change their form as needed, the control of spatial objects and medial surfaces is integrated into the organism of a building, materials turn “intelligent” and can be modelled – by manufacturing processes like CNC-milling – to fit the needs of the project. Spatial atmosphere, materials and the use of surfaces as places for communication are part of the core competences of interior architecture. Within our research work in Media Architecture, we´re working on the integration of digital media into architecture.
