Tutor(PhD Candidate): Jia-Rey Chang

The Interactive-Body workshop is an bio-inspired design workshop which hold the crucial concept of "Hyper-Morphology" stated below. The goal of the workshop is to inspire the participants by the concept and knowledge of natural morphology within the idea of cellular based component.

[Hyper-Morphology]: Hyper-Morphology outlines a bio-inspired evolutionary design process with a primary focus on cellular differentiation, adaptation and self-organization via collective decision-making processes. This idea of Hyper-Morphology will be considered as the main guideline for developing the workshop's design projects. Participants need to know the basic generic process of cellular differentiation to see how the genetic rule sets drive the whole morphologic growing process of organisms in nature. Meanwhile, by understanding the logic of Signal Induction, which refers to cascades of signaling events, during which a cell or tissue signals to another cell or tissue to influence its developmental fate, participants will get the inspiration of how they can implement and experiment this kind of bio-inspired evolutionary design processes for adaptive spaces via collective decision making of autonomous architectural components.

Participants will be separated into 6 groups. Each group will be assigned to different architectural element as a task for developing the project, as: Ceiling, Wall, Floor, Facade, Stairs/Ramp, Opening and combine their own architectural elements with any furniture function (defined by groups) to come up with the transformation result between architectural element and furniture though geometric transformation, such as:Open/Close, Expand/Shrink/Scale, Rotation, Twist, Bend...etc
