Dynamic Environments

Dynamic Environments studio focuses on the development of reconfigurable structures that enhance occupants' social and physical experiences of the built environment. The studio addresses the question of how reconfigurable spaces can enhance our well-being and how the inhabitants of a space prefer to interact with reconfigurable structures. In particular, the studio discusses "cyber-physical" computing, its social values, usability, and the technical aspects of developing reconfigurable architectures.

Exhibition

Works are currently exhibited at the Gallery area in the department of architecture, Kennesaw State University.
