Our research interest lies in the employing of non-linear systems to
actively delineate the interface between hardSpace and softSpace.
hardSpace is the implementation of an architectural materiality,
providing infrastructure for the softSpace, which is the realm
of human interface. The nature of this interstitial condition was
explored through the study of the interactions exhibited by multiagent
systems, their resulting organisational patterns and the
implementation of agency through material actuation. In projecting
a mixture of human behaviour within an agent-based system
of interactions, computerBlue’s prototypical system aims to provide
an architectural rethinking of the temporary and distributed event
The contemporary megaEvent scenario necessitates the employment
of an adaptable system that negotiates between typological
needs, temporary material deposition and the temporal but radically
different ways that crowds occupy event spaces. Due to its systemic
and prototypical nature, our agent-based system provides for
design adaptability within large data sets, mapping infrastructure
and interface for an event-based architecture.
