A symposium at the Architectural Association, London, for the launch of 4dspace: interactive architecture, the Jan/Feb 2005 issue of AD guest edited by Lucy Bullivant.

Interactive, customisable, lyrical, ambient, concerned with our sensory and cognitive wellbeing - a new breed of responsive environments and installations resulting from advanced multidisciplinary teamwork is starting to making its impact across cultural and commercial sectors. Not purely web- or computer-based activities, the best examples harness the virtual and the physical to act as socially-led cultural enablers, while bridging corporate concerns, technological investments, cultural industries and leisure experiences.

A team of international practitioners were invited by Lucy Bullivant to present and explore working models of effective multidisciplinary practice in this emerging field, together with the expanding notions of utility and communication responsive environments offer, as spatial media transcending conventional boundaries of time and place.

The event was supported by AD magazine and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
