Introduction: Museums have a well-established reputation for creating interactive environments by using both traditional and modern technologies of interaction. Technology centers and science museums are two particular prevalent examples that have quickly integrated interactive technologies to enhance the quality of presentation and level of interaction between both exhibits and visitors. Until recently, the meaning of ‘intelligence’ in the field of architecture has been developed as the model of control, feedback and monitoring to enable efficient operation of the systems. These systems are called interactive environments, which contain spaces with embedded computation and communication technologies intended to enhance ordinary activities. With the emergence of a new wave of digital technologies, museum visitors are no longer satisfied by simply visiting worthy displays of exhibits in glass cases. They expect to get actively involved with exhibits to experiment and informally learn from their own personified experience. The i-arch studio considers the various ways in which buildings can be designed and theorized as interactive environments. The studio project looks at ways of making buildings more responsive, adaptable, dynamic and engaging through the use of both traditional and contemporary cyber-physical technologies. The project began by considering a series of case-studies of the work of artists, roboticists, architects and designers in order to develop a conceptual framework for the design of a building exploring the future relationships between architecture, technology and the body. The Fall 2019 i-arch studio focused on creating a ‘museum of interactive technology’ to engage visitors actively in new kinds of experiences in the city of Atlanta, Georgia. The final design proposals aim to define interactive architectural spaces for consuming, creating and exhibiting information comprised of a cyber-physical core, which blurs the boundary between the digital, physical and spiritual worlds.

THE DEVICE Exploration Through Fabrication

Design Activity 01 | THE DEVICE: Exploration through Fabrication After conducting in-depth research to cultivate an understanding of historical and contemporary examples of interactive environments in the context of museums, each design team manifested a definition for the ‘modern museum of interactive technology’. Students sought an understanding of how, why and where we consume and create interactive environments. In other words, they investigated how a limited set of materials can create an intelligent system that has the potential to operate, or to be read at multiple scales of the built and natural environments. Subsequently, students designed and fabricated interactive devices by taking three key steps: I. Highlighting a specific site condition or set of conditions to conduct further in-depth research. II. Developing the design of a device or an instrument which enhances the link between this condition and the manner in which it is presented to and received by the human body. III. Fabricating the device at full scale and recording its presence and interaction on the given site. Link to a video illustrating various devices developed by students: https://youtu.be/EpJLU1Hsd7A

THE DEVICE 1.1

EMOTIONAL BUBBLE MAKER Jessica Headrick, Caleb Lawrence https://youtu.be/3RsUY0btkeU

The Emotional Bubble Maker analyzes the user’s current emotional state via a response to a prompt, dispensing a user-specific colored soap liquid. Each prompt answer is tied to a corresponding color that is representative of an emotion. This solution is then input into a bubble machine to paint the artistic representation of each users’ emotion on a larger piece of canvas. Through this process, two pieces of art are created: the stained cup that holds the color-specific solution- representative of the emotion of the individual- and a painted canvas- representative of the emotional collective.

The emotional bubble maker is a simplified physical representation of the dynamic between the environment, the individual, and the landscape formed by the collective. As each user of the device responds to a prompted question, the dialogue of an individual’s response to environmental influences is played out. The colors that each user receives represents the emotional palette with which the individual may act with when reacting to external stimuli. With these colors, the user may exhibit their emotions by expression through colored bubbles. Through the creation of the artwork on canvas, this device allows the user to evaluate how one’s individual emotions may compare to the larger tapestry of emotions in the people around them. This ultimately results in an expression of individual emotion and an understanding of the dynamic collective emotion.

THE DEVICE 1.3

STOMATA Nhan Luu, Hala Alfalih https://youtu.be/ZxHYAjHlZwU

Stomata offers different dialogues to facilitate various outputs onto a canvas with photo-chromic pigment. Different patterns imitate the natural patterns in the environment, allowing the experience of these patterns in a different dimension. Through this process, the canvas changes colors representing the different patterns for a small period of time before returning to the original color.


19


The device represents a dialogue occurring between the environment and the physical body. The dialogue is both conscious and subconscious; the user is consciously moving different patterns and the sun is subconsciously interacting with these filters to create artwork that is experienced as a result.

THE DEVICE 1.4

SPIRO Ana Giron & Asbiel Samaniego https://youtu.be/bz9MDx5ZQjg

Spiro is a dual-drawing machine that took inspiration from the Spirograph, a geometric drawing toy that produces mathematical roulette curves. The device also builds on the concept of stigmergy, which is defined as a mechanism of indirect coordination, through the environment, between agents or actions. In the case of Spiro, two individuals simultaneously operate two 3d printed arms and have full control as to the amount of spins they manually make, speed, and color of the pen. The central part of the device consists of a central wheel/gear system which is automated through a motor. The motor was programmed through the Arduino software, specifying it to rotate continuously in only one direction. Once the motor spins it would begin to move the central wheel in which the drawing canvas is located. As the two 3d printed arms get cranked manually the central piece is moving on its own. The end results are very abstract line-work art.

03 ARM ROTATION_


[01] HANDLE MOTION: At the very top a handle is spun manually around a rod that is attached to a horizontal gear. As the handle is spun the gear also begins to rotate and it begins to move the vertical gears. [02] WHEEL ROTATION: The central wheel rotates automatically through a motor that when plugged into a power source begins to rotate a smaller gear. That small gear then pushes and rotates the entire central wheel. [03] ARM ROTATION: The 3D printed arms rotate by pivoting around the top rod that gets activated when the handle motion is in play. Top and bottom rods are anchored to a base with the arms moving around them.

THE DEVICE 1.5

THE DRAWING FOREST Zach Hart & Huy Ho

https://youtu.be/swX2CsNnxWg

The Drawing Forest offers an interactive passage in which users can walk through a field of metallic poles that register the users’ motion through art applied to a canvas that serves as the walking surface as well. Depending on the path taken, the speed walked through, and the amount of force used to push through the forest, the resulting swinging motion of the poles varies, in turn, creating unique brush strokes to the canvas below. The more visitors that are allowed to pass through the space, the more dense the painting becomes.

31


The device is able to be broken down into 3 main pieces: the top piece acts a lintel that fits onto the two open side walls. The hanging poles that make up the forest are able to be detached and reattached to small hooks on the roof piece. The canvas is easily rolled out from a tube hosted on the right side of the device, and after using the device for a given time the canvas can be cut and displayed as an art piece, showcasing each user that interacted with the device through art. The medium used to create the paintings is interchangeable, with holsters hanging at the bottom of the pole being able to be removed and replaced with materials such as paint brushes, chalk, pastels, or charcoal. These different media each have unique properties that give the resulting art unique qualities.

Design Activity 02 | THE SPACE: Architectural Integration In this phase, students investigated how the device and spatial exhibitions may inform architectural spaces and how the space may enhance the experience and operation of the device. As a result, students established a tectonic language for a wider architecture and developed their museum based on initial interests coupled with site design. The end results, the ‘museum of interactive technology’, aim to engage visitors actively in new kinds of experiences in the city of Atlanta, Georgia.

THE SPACE 2.1

THE COLOR MUSEUM Jessica Headrick, Caleb Lawrence The Color Museum facilitates the discourse between the environments and visitors by offering a space, which affects the body. It facilitates emotional self-expressions through color, and a collective influence of these self-expressions on the space resulting in dynamic architecture.

iMAS Zach Hart, Huy Ho [The Intersectional Museum of Art & Science] The Intersectional Museum of Art & Science (iMAS) is a space designed to let visitors become an essential part of the exhibit themselves. Various aspects of science are displayed both inside and outside of the museum’s walls, each showcased in an artistic light. Properties of physics in the museum create art through a variety of media. Rotational kinematics become a method of creating unconscious light shows, swinging pendulums become a method of painting that tracks visitors movements, and sound waves become visible on shifting canvases of water.
