Corpora in Si(gh)te
Architecture as an environmental, spatial measuring machine Architecture is an intelligent corpus, a reflection of the environment surrounding itself. The information technology of Corpora in Si(gh)te by doubleNegative Architecture has maintained the mutality between architecture and environment in a virtual way through continuous spatial measurements, reflecting what C.i.S architecture believes to be the core principle of architecture.
doubleNegatives Architecture (dNA) sets up a number of sensors to form a mesh network throughout the target area - the building of Collegium Hungaricum Berlin - in order to collect and distribute real-time environmental information such as temperature, brightness, humidity, wind direction and sound. The data collected from these sources are processed by a software and in real-time translated into nodes reflecting the sensor network. The fluid character of this architecture occurs as a living form, its shifting structure relates to every environmental change. The Japanese-Swiss-Hungarian artists' collective dNA consists of an interdisciplinary team of architects, designers, musicians and software developers.
