Technology and Choreography

Negroponte (1970) pointed to the possibilities of computer-assisted interfaces for artists in the early stages as strategies to engage audiences in a dialogue. Simultaneously, the notion of generative systems in the architectural field has been developed along with the advent... Read More

Kinetica Art Fair 2014

We’ve had a fantastic few days at the Kinetica Art Fair held at the Truman Brewery –  part of the Frieze London art fair 2014. Kinetica featured over 50 exhibitors, as well as a number of performance pieces. With our... Read More

Flights of Fancy

“We believe in the possibility of an incalculable number of human transformations, and we say without smiling that wings sleep in the flesh of man”  – Multiplied Man and the Reign of the Machine (1911), Marinetti This years... Read ...

Domestic Ecologies

“It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It... Read More

Motive Mythologies

This years Lab Research Theme is ‘Motive Mythologies’. Below is the brief handed out to students at the beginning of the year to stimulate responses. If you’re interested in studying with the Interactive Architecture Lab, you can find out more... Read More

Scorpion – Robotics Controller

A project that has been developing in our Lab for over 2 years now. I thought I’d share a link to its dedicated website. Read More

Industrial Improvisation

Chryssa Varna joined the Interactive Architecture Lab with an interest in bringing Dance and Architecture together. Her fascinating project between 2012-2013 brought together these two worlds through a series of kinetic installations the last of which “Industrial Improvisation” gathered a... Read More

Morphs 1.0

It was a great pleasure to see William Bondin graduate with distinction for a project which examined  fascinating questions about the relationship between morphology and behaviour. Regine at We Make Money Not Art did a great interview with William which... Read More

Keynote – Ruairi Glynn @ Fascinate Conference 2013

I thought I’d share a Keynote that I gave a few months ago at the brilliantly well organised and ambitiously curated Fascinate Conference. My thanks to the guys in Falmouth for the invitation and for sharing the conference footage also.... Read More

Cellular Reticulations

How does space become complex? What are the aesthetic possibilities of generating complexity out of the seemingly un-complex? Cellular Reticulations is inspired by computational research into the emergent and unpredictable nature of interaction. Even very simple systems can produce extraordinary... Read More


Through a series of digital prototypes and spatial experiments, visual perception in virtual reality and gestural interaction between occupant and virtual space have been investigated. Early research explored 3D drawing into physical space interrogating the relationship between the physical... Read More


CRAF is a mobile agency that promotes dialog through the performance of projectile catalysts. With the contemporary breakdown of cultural expectations and expressions of dissent, CRAF investigates the methods for constructing a communication platform to encourage social exchange. The... Read More

Furl: Soft Pneumatic Pavilion

The domain of soft robotics is forming as a new frontier of kinetic designing. Not only creating many new possibilities for robotics but also in architecture. Challenging conventional design thinking about adaptive architecture the experiments outlined in this research suggest... Read More

Eye Catcher

Using a combination of industrial robotics and high power magnets, a seemingly inconspicuous frame on a wall, magically comes to life. Through a series of experimental films, photography and physical prototypes, the primitive effects of eye (and eye-like) stimuli have... Read More

Interactive Architecture Lab Catalog 2013

Very please to be posting this today as it feels somewhat like a new start for this website that has been static now for a few years while I have built a number of quite large kinetic installation pieces and... Read More

Spacemaker VR by Digital Physical

Here’s a new Kickstarter that I really think is worth supporting. Its from the very talented Digital Physical Group in LA. Really looking forward to seeing how this changes the way Architects and Designs might work in the future AND how clients will view work. I’ve always been sceptical of VR but it looks like [...]


Smartgeometry is pleased to announce that sg2013 will be at The Bartlett in London from 15-20 April 2013. The four day Workshop (15-18 April) and two day conference (19-20 April) will follow the format of the highly successful preceding events sg2010 at IaaC in Barcelona, sg2011 at CITA in Copenhagen and 2012 at RPI in [...]

Organised by the Professorship for Architecture and Digital Fabrication of ETH Zurich in collaboration with the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, FABRICATE 2014 will bring together researchers and practitioners...Show More Summary

Fearful Symmetry at the Tate

Well I’ve finally found the time to edit the footage and pick out some images for my far to infrequent posts to this blog. The good news is that a complete overhaul is in progress with a whole new website coming soon. More on that later. For now here are a few photos and a [...]
