title Responsive Systems: Foundations and Application - The importance of defining meta-systems and their methods

summary Responsive architecture is often considered as one that merely adapts to change. This reflects its limited and still incipient application in architecture. Due to the current resource crisis, systemic building management is essential. This article argues that there are no established processes for creating and managing responsive architecture. To establish a foundation in this area, it claims that it is necessary to deepen knowledge about systems, computation, mathematics, biology and robotics. Despite being a vast subject, it proposes a state of the art of the systems, investigating how to operate them. A method for generating responsive systems is tested and implemented in a practical case. Two methods of adaptation are proposed and tested: static and dynamic adaptation. These methods reinforce the point that responsive architecture can use not only active mechanisms, but also passive methods embedded in its form as information. The research concludes that information management is critical to define what is designated in software engineering as architecture of the system. Thus, it suggests that it is necessary to define meta-systems and to define their methods to support the generation, fabrication, construction and operation of responsive systems.
