Abstract: Interactive architecture challenges the traditional notions of design of architecture. Academically, we were taught of design as problem-solving. In-depth discussion about interaction and its influence is not commonly made. “If a space would actively mediate our needs and the environment, its demand on physical resources could be slashed. If it would transform to facilitate multi-uses, its function would be optimized. If an environment would adapt to our desires, it would shape our experience.” There are vast numbers of ideas and concepts about interactivity, this dissertation seek to discuss some of them at length and gather the evidences of these concepts at their points of convergence and most importantly, the relevance and value of interactivity in architecture. Through literature reviews, there would be discussions about conversation theory by Gordon Pask as it is closely associated with interactivity, and the concepts of interactive design from a few architects, namely Usman Haque, Antonino Saggio and Christian Moeller. From the understanding of these theories, the concepts would be used in discussion of some interactive projects. The factors and concepts involved in interactive architecture would help build upon a few scenarios as an extension to what I have learnt through the dissertation. Though interactive architecture is still in its experimental stage, the continued pursuance of greater experiments will see more understanding in these ideas. It would also push improvements in technology because people want to achieve more in the interactivity of their design. Many experimental spaces by interaction designers may be used in real life and architects may learn from interaction designers their approach to creating innovative situations.
