“Responsive Environments” looks into the future of the built environment from a technologically augmented point of view, with a strong focus on what makes technologies stick and sustainable. By taking a holistic view and putting the human being at the center and forefront, the course examines new and emerging models, technologies, and techniques for the design of innovative architectural human interfaces and responsive environments.
