"Toward Responsive Architectures" by Philip Beesley, Sachiko Kirosue, and Jim Ruxton
"This book is about responsive architectures. The project is an exploration of the interconnectedness of what surrounds us. The focus of this collection is on a new generation of interactive systems within science, art and architecture that are based on constantly evolving relationships. Using a wide definition of architecture that includes both built and natural realms, we examine dynamic systems and environments of scales from molecules to cities."
"Implant Matrix treats an architectural building skin as a responsive textile akin to a natural system. This assembly creates mechanical functions that offer active exchanges with building occupants. The project challenges our relationship with nature by creating an artificial system that shows a mechanical empathy."
