2012 unpublished
We describe the design process of a formal study that investigates the potential of adaptive architecture to directly influence or control the physiology of its inhabitants. We depict two pilot studies that inform the design process of the formal study. These studies raise questions regarding the effects of such environments, including the benefits and potential dangers. The formal study will also be an initial step towards introducing the built environment as an active agent in environmental
