Multiscalarity of Adaptive Architecture. The efficiency of micro and the resilience of macro in contemporary design

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter


Dealing with the multiscalar approach of contemporary architectural design raises the question of which architecture today is willing to accommodate a constant comparison between different scales, materials, and practices. It is believed that the processes that best show this purpose are related to resilient architecture, which elaborates innovative features through adaptive processes. With the introduction of external factors to the building as design materials, adaptive architecture can be considered as a transformative condition for some invariants of the discipline. The resilient and adaptive approach, therefore, uses technological elements, whose scale is Micro, embedded in the building and operating at the medium scale, to capture information from an external basin and return an improved response to environmental and human conditions.
