.Realtime Collaborative Objects

“Realtime Collaborative Objects invites to collectively contribute to shared architectural projects, resulting in hybrid architectures of tangible complexity.

The way we communicate, access and exchange information recently accelerated towards realtime sharing of data, experiences and “bits & pieces”, especially through open platforms that enable user-generated content and a collective production of value. To embrace this current understanding of collective content production in architecture, we introduce an open collaborative workflow. A framework, based on our concept of “collaborative objects” that enable realtime participatory engagement in spatially distributed teams. Hereby a fundamentally digital architecture of discrete parts gets informed by personalized design value and computational design strategies. The platform’s framework allows for local design decisions of part to part relations, as well as provokes communication and negotiation on a global scale, resulting in a multi-subjective collaborative whole. These hybrid buildings represent a fuzzy form of user-generated architectural content of tangible complexity.
Furthermore the collaborative objects embed visions of spatial appropriation, considering the future of leisure, work and housing. In this sense providing a human scale to the stacked building components for the many.

In playful design sessions, we will work together in realtime on speculative architectural proposals. Exploring the high diversity of combinatorial, computational and collaborative design of aggregated shared parts, clusters, functions, visions and dreams.”
