SE.5 – Elective Seminar
Faculty: Ángel Muñoz
Interaction Expert: Cristian Rizzuti

Making spaces talk: A practical introduction to electronics and programming for architecture. Democratization of technology previously limited to the specialized industries is enabling a new approach towards how we understand digital technology in architecture and design. Thanks to open source communities such as Arduino and Processing we are moving from sketching ideas towards building real prototypes and testing them with real users. Prototyping does not just mean technology it is also a new way of understanding how we design and make things. The seminar will be an introduction to the principles of electronics and programming. From using sensors for logging data about the environment to controlling interactive lights and robots using the Internet. We will follow a practical approach, starting from simple examples and working in teams, we will design and build the public spaces of tomorrow, connecting citizens with their environment.
