Abstract

Technological mediation expands and multiplies our bodily capacities, since it influences the way we relate to our environment. This directly affects our notion of architecture, its scope and practice. From the body-machine to super-bodies and enhanced senses, to the virtual, or the de-codification of data into visual and physical experience, we nowadays require new ethical arguments and considered awareness. This architectural proposal presents a sensitive use of technology that supports and encourages environmental and social sustainability. Supported by scientific literature, it anticipates a novel use of augmented reality and proposes future architectural scenarios which include new materializations and forms of spatial and sensorial experiences.
