Abstract:This research presents an exploration into a novel design methodology that incorporates architecture, multimedia, and interactive digital technologies to create an immersive experience that encourages a spatial and sensorial discourse between user and their built environment. This immersive design method creates a continuous narrative that allows a multi-directional interaction between the two. This interaction creates a “sound” architectural aesthetic that changes the experience of space. The target of the interaction between user and space is the five human senses resulting in an immersive aesthetic. In order to illustrate this immersive aesthetic, five architectural prototypes were created using an assorted design workflow of parametric programming environment and interactive prototyping platform. This workflow is employed for the creation of five prototypes used for the simulation that has user interaction as an input and formal geometries as an output. These five prototypes target various human senses in order to enhance the immersive aesthetic. Each protoype is evaluated according to individual prototype’s ability to stimulate user’s senses. Finally, future research based on the outcomes of this research is suggested.
