We are interested in the Behaviour and Interaction of Things, Environments and their Inhabitants. The Interactive Architecture Lab at UCL is engaged in a range of academic research activities and industry collaborations. At the heart of the Lab is our 15 month Masters programme MArch Design for Performance & Interaction which gives students an opportunity to exploit the potential of new sensing, computation, networked and responsive technologies to imagine, build and test new spaces of performance & interaction.
The Interactive Architecture Lab shares its expertise with London’s leading design agencies to develop interactive experiences, robotic installations, advertising campaigns, products, services and events. Clients have included Nike, Fosters + Partners, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Arup, Buro Happold, Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, onedotzero, Marshmallow Laser Feast, Prettybird, Studio Roso, Alma-nac, Haptic Architects & Twitter.
The Interactive Architecture Lab works closely and regularly collaborates with London’s world leading engineering firms, cultural foundations and research institutions. A selection of them includes Create London, the Royal Academy, the Tate Modern, Kings College Centre of Robotics Research, Textile Futures Research Centre, Central School of Speech & Drama, Medical Research Council, Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council, and the BBC.
