BEHAVIOURAL AFFECTS

Architectural Association School of Architecture, London

Behavioural Affects explores the generation of complex material behaviour through organisations of matter and energy. Working with a small and simple set of inputs, a series of complex dynamic outputs are generated that produce designed affects such as movement, colour, translucency, and light through the employment of hydraulic actuation in intricately detailed material organisations. Designs create a variety of material and visual affects that offer complex movements and configuration that qualitatively transforms over time. The workshop prototyping made use of laser cutter and CNC technology as well as the dry and wet workshops available at the AA to develop designs utilising a range of materials.
