Part of the KAIST Research Series book series (KAISTRS)

Abstract

This paper discusses the role of prototyping as a vehicle to integrate electronic media technology, materiality, and physical computing into architectural design process and education. It connects a creating-making approach to a broader maker and hacker culture through adaptive and autonomous assemblies and embedded electronic systems. It recognizes the need for a new conceptual dis-course on what constitutes effective design methodology that nurtures innovation and considers all design factors: social, cultural, and technological.
