Title: Adaptable Architecture : architecture that changes through time
Author: Hughes, Kathryn
Abstract: Just as living things grow and adapt, so should the things we create. In this juxtaposition lays the ability to propel our creations into a cyclical lifestyle of rebirth through functionality. Spatial experiences are received directly as an extension of one’s body, as a dynamic recipient from a static host. In this perspective, it is possible for a dynamic relationship between an individual & their built environment to exist. A building should be able to grow and adjust as we do, creating the opportunity for regeneration & recycling of function & materiality. In this environment, the cyclical rebirth of the building becomes a driving force keeping technological innovation & sociological understanding participating & impacting the local community on a daily basis.
