title Pneuma-Technics // Methods for Soft Adaptive Environments

summary This work-in-progress paper explores the opportunity to rethink the relationships architecture has with the environment and human behavior. Adaptive systems are gaining traction in the discourse as relationships between the built environment, the natural environment and its users evolve over time. This project, Pneuma-Technics, investigates pneumatic methods in the built environment, composite materials and components, computation, physical computing and sensory actuation. The objective is to advance a developing typology of responsive systems: a breathing architecture that is sensitive to its changing environment. Pneuma-Technics is actuated breath in built form - pneuma, the Greek word for “to breath,” and technics, the Greek word for technique/craft in art. The project imagines the potentials of a soft, interactive surface that allows for the passage of light, air, and human vision, yet maintains enclosure and insulation as necessary for architectural performance. These innovations project new futures onto traditional methods of architectural production and engage in nontraditional materials to develop unique environments. Pneuma-Technics’ is a body of research that consists of tangible experiments for the advancement of soft environments. However, we design for these potential futures as materials, methods, and collaborative action evolve the discourse toward adaptive technologies.
