This kind of creativity is amazing. I'm now thinking how (and if) I can apply this to my architectural projects. It could make for a heightened experience with little additional expense. For instance, maybe the room can track the occupants as they move through the space and deliver additional "spatial" elements based on their location. Suddenly the architecture's ability to affect the mood of the inhabitant just went way up. I'm not saying it's for every building or every person, but the idea is intriguing.
If we design spaces for this kind of interaction with architecture in mind, how would we design them differently? Would a lot more of our architecture become a screen-like element? Could we get away with less expensive skins and handle more of the fenestration digitally? Could it change throughout the day, week, month or year? Could a simple, dumb space become the ultimate flexible room for so many different activities just by being able to accept digital projections?
I don't condone architecture being relegated to fashion; don't get me wrong. I'm wondering how this can be used to solve real problems - both functional and at a deeper level how people actually interact with architecture rather than simply passing through it. This just might be a game changer. Put on your thinking caps, kids.
