"The Living Architecture Systems Group" by Philip Beesley

“Can architecture integrate near-living functions? The Living Architecture Systems Group (LASG) is bringing together researchers and industry collaborators from Canada, USA, and Europe in an interdisciplinary research cluster dedicated to an emerging trend of architectural design that questions definitions of life itself. Applying knowledge from interdisciplinary research, LASG is developing built environments with qualities that come strikingly close to life; environments that can move, respond and learn; environments that grow; and are adaptive and empathic toward their inhabitants.”
