Architecting Interaction explores designing for interaction through space. Space, a sort of physical interface, stimulates human, analog and digital interactions.
All our actions are interactions.
Beyond the digital realm of interactive design, interactions include people’s verbal and nonverbal physical interactions. As an architect, space is my interface. Whatever yours may be, I believe it is only a tool and only relevant in light of the interactions it can stimulate and the enhanced users’ experiences it can offer. I believe we cannot design interaction itself.
Instead, we need to design the context for interaction. So how can we create the spaces for interaction to emerge? The key is in designing a context that embodies the three qualities of a human context.
