title Prototyping shifts in design scale - The "Carotid thermo-regulator" as intelligent body architecture
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 1, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 749-756
summary This paper explores the use of smart technologies like physical computing with a sensor and an actuator, to create a prototype of a wearable technology, which augments our interaction with the environment, and people. The initial design idea was based on an empirical study of varying body heat signature patterns corresponding to emotions. However, we are interested to expand the discussion beyond technical issues in the design process, to reflect on the broader relationship of the human body with space and people. The study raises some important questions vis-?-vis current mobility and scalar reduction of Technology today: What is the relationship between architecture and the human body? Can a wearable technology be used to indicate, and express a fluctuating emotion? How would a traditional garment element evolve to respond to a new requirement or program? What are the appropriate scales we should refer in order to design our surrounding space? What sort of expertise is required to shift in design scales?
