NEW WAY OF COMMUNICATION USING PARALANGUAGE AND GESTURALANGUAGE


PROJECT THESIS

Architecture is tool driven and all tools are languages, therefore one needs to master the language in order to create. The immersive internet and VR together is a new language, an experience based tool. This tool has the potential to be easily learnt and can be adopted by everyone (no longer limit to architects and drafters). It will be able to close the gap of communicating information between the mental level to the physical level. 

PROPOSAL

In the augmented world of the future, we no longer communicating through user interfaces (surfaces of touch screens or drawing on paper). Our paralanguage (personalised speech) and gestural language (personalised gestures) are set free by an architectural device which captures the sound of our voice into size, distance & colour range and our gestures into a three-dimensional shape. An architectural device is a tool that imprints our expressions onto the environment around us. This new way of communication will create personalised spaces and new traces of our existence in this ever-changing world.
