Under the title 'Data-Space' the project undertaken within MakeLab this year revolved around the theme of ‘surveillance’, investigating the changing relationships between the built environment and its inhabitants through new protocols for the recording and application of user data.
The workshop used the forest as a laboratory for the construction of a large scale 'data space' that incorporated sensors and communication devices, which were then used to test complex and evolving recognition and influencing behaviours.
Using a live link between the 1:1 data space on site and 3D parametric design software, we experimented with conceptual and data-driven design methodologies and how these can be applied to future architecture and urban planning and usage processes.
The workshop produced a 1:1 interactive installation and recordings of experiments between the installation and human movement and behaviour.
