HyperBody is an interesting research group, led by Kas Oosterhuis, under the Faculty of Architecture at the Delft University of Technology.  HyperBody is researching various forms of interactivity within architectural design:

“The goals set for the group’s research are to explore techniques and methods for designing and building of non-standard, virtual and interactive architectures. Designed and prototyped programmable buildings illustrate the paradigm shift from animation towards real-time behaviour. Hyperbody introduces interactivity not only in the process of collaborative design, but also during the use and maintenance of buildings. Hyperbody looks at all stages of the lifecycle of buildings and at the economical and ecological consequences, focusing on the development of new ideas and practical applications for interactive architecture. This leads to emergence of pro-active building bodies which act in a changing environment.”
