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 and collaborators 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.
