Concepts, techniques, and methods for designing and building non-standard and interactive architecture.
Hyperbody, directed by prof. ir. Kas Oosterhuis, is a research group at the Faculty of Architecture, Delft University of Technology. The group develops concepts, techniques, and methods for designing and building non-standard and interactive architecture. It operates as the counterpart of Kas Oosterhuis’ architectural practice ONL [Oosterhuis_Lénárd] in Rotterdam and is exploring conditions when building components establish interactive relationships to each other, people and the surrounding natural or built environment. In such context, the building body becomes a hyperbody, a platform for participation, an instrument for users to interact, negotiate, and perform transactions between physical and virtual, natural and artificial.
