title Generating topologies: Transformability, real-time, real-world
source First International Conference on Critical Digital: What Matters(s)? - 18-19 April 2008, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Cambridge (USA), pp. 213-220
summary Customization is a contemporary trend, which should not be ignored by architecture. An increasing demand and decreasing resources will necessitate the reuse and the sharing of space. Transformability will facilitate these tasks. On the basis of a case study, this paper demonstrates the technical feasibility of a continuously transformable structure, which enables the transformation and manipulation not only of shape, but of topological qualities as well. However, this fully and universally transformable architecture itself cannot only be seen in the context of customization, but also as a further development of architecture as a discipline.
