This lecture surveys essential concepts and significant past and current projects that deal with interactive, responsive environments, ie buildings that can change their configuration, appearance, and environmental conditions in response to patterns of occupation and context (and in return can shape those too). The principal argument is that change in architecture is far from being adequately addressed or explored theoretically, experimentally or phenomenologically.
