How Architecture Technology Interacts With You
When designing technology into architecture it must be integrated – not just to fit in with the aesthetic effects of the architecture, but to also fit into the narrative of the place. All too often, technology sits where conversations should spark. Computers, televisions and even lighting technologies should enhance the functions they support.
Do you remember the last time you were in a dressing room and felt you looked terrible? Blame it on the lighting that feels like an interrogation is about to begin. In this case, lighting is as much about helping the person to look good as it is to make the clothing look good. All too often design places emphasis on function and forgets the person involved in that function.
Technology should proactively augment your experience, not detract from it.
