Description/Abstract

With the personal interest in tectonic design and kinetic structure arts. This study is aimed to explore the application of interactive technology in the transformation of the structure system in a tectonic architecture design--- to cross the gap between static tectonic design and kinetic structure in small scale. The responsive pavilion will sense and respond to the verification of gravity loads (for occupancy detection) and lights (for solar energy), with the spatial transformation of the entire structure system. As a result, the form of the architecture will follow the function. The responsive pavilion will spatially respond to the varied occupancy (loads), lighting, and program demands.
