Associate Professor at the IT University of Copenhagen Kjell Yngve Petersen and PhD student Cameline Bolbroe want to examine how we as human beings react, when architectural structures change shape according to our behavior and needs.

 How do we create adaptive buildings?

In the research project “Adaptive Architecture” Kjell Yngve Petersen and Cameline Bolbroe work with moving beams. Via small ultra sensors placed at the ends of each beam, the beams register when a person moves, and then move accordingly.

The beams work as sketches for designing adaptive architecture and are meant to provide knowledge on how human beings behave when experiencing rooms that change their shape and structure.
