Interactive Architecture dot Org is going Stateside! I’ve just finished putting the final touches to organising my first Interactive Architecture Event.

Here are the event details.

About The Bartlett Interactive Architecture Workshop
The Interactive Architecture Workshop is based in Diploma Unit 14 of the postgraduate studios at the Bartlett. Postgraduate Architecture students take a 2 year Diploma where the second year of the course is set up to encourage directed research into a particular aspect of design. Our students chose to investigate the architecture of time-based transformation. Projects vary from speculations about large long-term landscape transformations to the construction of 1:1 responsive and interactive installations.
