PHD    01:   architectural   design   and   creative   cognition

Many architects confess that, very gradually and unconsciously they accumulate conventional design approaches, because slowly confinements in construction and conventional stereotypes impose upon them, dominate them and sub-consciously prevent them to think in an innovative manner. It is seemingly logical that if given a chance to experience and explore innovative spatial propositions in virtual environments, totally free of any conventional limitations, one can experience a conceptual expansion, since irrelevant pictures are added to old design approaches.  This will help in enhancing the process of creative thinking by shedding confinements and stereotypes, thus helping designers to expand their conceptual boundaries and thus eventually help them to enhance their creativity.Creativity on the other hand is a vague term, and its definition is totally pertaining to the context of study and the discipline. As far back as 1959, Taylor surveyed about 100 definitions in his attempt to clarify the creative process (Taylor 1959). The definitions vary significantly by the content and complexity. Nevertheless, there are two commonly “universal” attributes of creativity: novelty and appropriateness. For the purpose of this research, we will consider creativity as a cognitive process that generates new concepts, which are novel and unconventional.






PHD    02:   emergent   aesthetics   and   interactive   space

Technological developments in the area of ICT and their deployment within the field of Interactive Architecture are still embedded within the notion of centralised control, in opposition to the concept of interaction. Interaction is an act of active two-way conversation, and therefore involves meaning making, interpretation, memory, experience, imagination, creativity and emotion of human beings within structuring meta-frameworks for designing and conceiving interactive environments. A central issue embedded within Interactive Architecture owing to its inherent character of autonomous agency is the issue of emergence as regards form, aesthetics, meaning, functionality and usage perspectives. In order to extend our understanding of such dynamic, highly adaptive environments, and in turn to understand Interaction in a holistic manner, it becomes crucial to interface the notion of Emergence in Architecture with the concept of Emergent Aesthetics. This research paper thus intends to frame an extended understanding and guideline towards conceiving interactive space through the concept of emergent aesthetic that can be obtained when the human body, mind and all the senses are used as a systemic interface to artificial interactive systems.


The 4EA cognitive approach (Embodied, Embedded, Enactive, Extended and Affective) considers the vast majority of cognition as real-time interaction of a distributed and differential system composed of brain, body and world thus considering cognitive activity as an immediate rather on-line interaction with the environment. This approach when interfaced with the idea of pragmatist aesthetics, which emphasizes how people experience the world dialogically as embodied subjects shall be used to provide the basis for exploring an alternative conception of interaction design. In this conception emergence in aesthetics and emergence of spatial qualities tend to operate within a cyclic loop emanating from interaction processes and cognitive processes in real-time.  This critical co-relation and its impact on the conception of interactive architecture shall be expanded upon in this research.




It has been more than 40 years since Myron Kruegerdeveloped “Glowflow” in 1969, which offered visitors the possibility of modifying visual and sonic parameters by means of pressure-sensitive sensors. (Giannetti, 2004) Since then, the rapidly developing technology (sensors, software, programs, actuators, manufacturing…) turned more and more fictions into reality and apart from developing complex geometry driven architectural and interior projects, has made it possible for a great number of so called “interactive architecture” projects to be realized (Fox & Kemp, 2009). However, on careful observation, most of these projects operate as “active” & “reactive” systems, instead of being truly “interactive”. Many such “active” works failed in challenging and extending people’s understanding of the nature of the space, stimulate meaning making, evoking emotions etc and therefore, deny involving the essence of human interaction, which, could have been a significant contribution to developing human cognition driven architectural works.


The question, as regards the characteristics of interaction and interactivity, thus becomes important to investigate? Background research on the definition of interaction reveals: Interaction to be a bidirectional or even multi-directional process: Interaction is a terminology used to elaborate the action which occurs as two or more objects have an effect upon one another. The generation of a two-way effect/dialogue instead of a one-way causal effect/monologue is the basic underlying principle for interaction. Interactivity as a phenomenon is similar to the degree of responsiveness, and is examined as a communication process in which each message is related to the previous messages exchanged, and to the relation of those messages to the messages preceding them. What this implies is that in the case of interactive and reactive response, the roles of the sender and the receiver are interchangeable with each subsequent message. Thus, a basic condition for interactivity to prevail is a coherent response from each communicant. This understanding, in the field of architecture, by architects such as Prof. Kas Oosterhuis imply that “Interactive Architecture can be defined as the art of building relationships between built components and second, as building relations between people and built components” (Oosterhuis, 2006, p. 4). Also, in their seminal book Interactive Architecture, Michael Fox and Miles Kemp state that“A truly interactive system is a multiple-loop system in which one enters into a conversation: a continual and constructive information exchange. As people interact with architecture, they should not be thought of as “users” but instead as “participants.”  (Fox & Kemp, 2009, p. 13) Therefore, interaction should be a conversation. 


One of the most interesting aspects of Interaction however, is its ability to shape experience, as well as influence lifestyles and behaviors. Fox and Kemp states that “Architectural space can take advantage of an audience locally, regionally, and globally by re-conceptualizing the role that the physical environment plays in shaping the viewer’s experience.” (2009, p.138) According to Fox and Kemp, interactive architecture can create an enhanced spatial experience, and can create a dialogue amongst the inhabitants based on either satisfying an interpretation of goal states or creating a new emergent state based on ambiguous assumptions of desires.” (Fox & Kemp, 2009, p.138). Last but not the least, because of the bidirectional nature of interactivity, at a systems level, it involves a careful negotiation between top-down and bottom-up processes, which result in emergent, unpredictable yet organized communication as an inherent feature. This results in an innate human like communication rather than a mechanic input-output based feedback loop. 


In the contemporary, owing to the enhancements in technology, which enable people to develop real-time communication with spatial environments, the agenda for architecture and more so for identifying the intricacies of spatial adaptability and their understanding for meaning making and emotional response has escalated. Could an interactive space by its very nature be concerned with people’sexperience and response, or in other words, human cognition?. The research aim is thus geared towards using a cognitive approach to explore interactivity between architectural spaces and human beings, from the perspective of the participants within the space, instead of the designer. The central idea behind the research revolves around the connection of interaction design and human cognition for a meaningful integration of multi-sensory technology into interactive spaces.

This research accentuates the experience. Identifying its way of operation and pointing out its existence and relevance. Experiences indirectly affect creativity. The more inventory of experiences, the more and better combination of ideas are possible. Being in varied or diverse environments can train individuals to encode information in multiple ways, building a myriad of associations between concepts. For example, bilinguals, who have been exposed to two languages, are more creative than monolinguals (Nemeth & Kwan, 1987; Simonton, 1999). Creativity is found at relatively high rates for individuals who are first or second generation immigrants and for individuals who are ethnically diverse or ethnically marginalised (Lambert, Tucker, & d’Anglejan, 1973; Simonton, 1997, 1999). At the group level, creativity is facilitated within collaborative groups that contain diverse members (Guimera`, et al., 2005; J. M. Levine & Moreland, 2004) and in groups in which heterogeneous opinions are expressed (Nemeth & Wachtler, 1983; Simonton, 2003). Even at the societal level, creativity increases after civilisations open themselves to outside influences and when geographic areas are politically fragmented and relatively diverse (Simonton, 1997).


Considering the brief introduction on creativity and role of experience and diversity, the research proposes designers, surfing in virtual environment to gain novel experiences, and broaden their perception of environment to enhance their creativity. Virtual Environment in this research are considered as real-time interactive and fully immersive virtual 3d environment. In contrast to the definition of Virtual Reality which is somehow an imitation of the physical world (consider flight simulation). Also emphasising on the unconventional virtual environments within which an emergent spatial pattern can dynamically evolve in time with respect to user interactions, a variety of spatially intriguing concepts such as: Multiple dimensions, Dematerialisation, Infinite depth, Continuous change, Multiple scales etc. can be experimented with. 


Another important role of implementing virtual environment in design is trying to define a new criterion for evaluating architecture. It has been widely believed that what are now important in architecture discipline are unified concepts and objects clear function and performance. Reality, ironically, compels partiality, discontinuity of space, discontinuity of experience and conciseness. Finally, constructability, speed of procedures, etc. in designing in the physical world are evaluating parameters for architecture. Following such criterion while designing adds a variety of constrains on the architect, which unfortunately results in a reserved rather safe role-play. Designing in virtual environments uses the same tool of expression as architecture, however it is free from the consequence of the built, technology, material etc. As such it can suggest an opposing value system: interaction, immersion, fragmentary, adventure, joy, innate stimulus, infinity, continuous change, etc. Thus a virtual environment can be positioned in opposition to realistic architecture, as polemical, critical and experimental.


Designing in virtual environments is an ongoing practice that is built into the language of architecture. The utilitarian discipline of architecture requires a system to value them especially in a paradoxical way, negative or dichotomy to its main development course, though it can refurnish itself. Also new evaluation criterion can become a stimulus to push designers to thinks outside the box.The speculation on the relationship between experiencing virtual environments and creativity is expected to answer the following questions:


(a) What types of virtual environments are needed for enhancing creative performance?

(b) How does surfing in virtual environment benefit creativity?

(c) How does the brain perceive such immersive environments? (Does it use a reductionist point of view or is it an emergent phenomenon?)

(d) In terms of topology, can this mathematical term be applicable in visual perception of environment?

(e) Can the brain define certain characteristics of space even when the space deforms?


As an overview of the major speculations in this research, we are seeking to prove that:


(a) Surfing/Exploring Virtual environment enhances creative performance and creativity-supporting cognitive processes (e.g., recruitment of different ideas and retrieval of unconventional knowledge);

(b) The connection between experiencing virtual environments and creativity is most apparent when individuals have had the experience of deeply “immersing” themselves in virtual environment and “interacting” with the environment;

(c) Adapting and opening themselves to new experiences and actively interact and compare the differences they encounter between unconventional environments and the physical world can boost the benefits of this experiencing;

(d) A weaker relationship between experiencing virtual environments and creativity emerges in contexts where one confines themselves to limitations of the physical world, such as: construction limitations, material limitations etc.
