My Building is my Display - omnipresent graphical output as hybrid communicators
Communicating Space(s) [24th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-5-9] Volos (Greece) 6-9 September 2006, pp. 610-616
This paper presents an innovative approach towards the possibilities and challenges of the built environment as a multidimensional graphical output device. The near future will witness every single part of a building being digitally connected. Consequently, buildings themselves can be novel media for communication especially of graphical content. Buildings and cities will therefore become gigantic ‘displays’ without frames or the classical fixed proportions 4:3 or 16:9. Architects should be able to deal with this novel ‘material’, as the appearance of their architecture significantly changes.
