title Design Ecologies for Responsive Environments: Resonant Chamber, an Acoustically Performative System"
source ACADIA 12: Synthetic Digital Ecologies [Proceedings of the 32nd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-62407-267-3] San Francisco 18-21 October, 2012), pp. 373-382
summary This paper positions the development and performance of a responsive acoustic envelope system, called Resonant Chamber, within significant discourses in ecology, systems theory and cybernetics. The project is developed through two dominant threads. First, the synthetic design process that entails engaging simultaneous computational and physical investigations which inform each other through various feedback and control regimes - from simulation and testing frameworks to material limits and behaviors to geometric, technological and manufacturing limitations or constraints. Second, the paper elaborates on the system's embedded sensing, communication, feedback and actuation system that transforms its performance to a kinetic, responsive environment that opens up possibilities for active acoustic control, as well as open-ended interaction and play with inhabitants. Within this paradigm, the designer operates through an adaptive mode, between control and the dynamic shaping of possibilities within digital, physical and effective logics, constraints and opportunities.
