Wayne Chung, Aisling Kelliher, Peter Scupelli and Daragh Byrne

The main goal of this research is to capture, analyze and represent the integrative design processes in complex educational settings that require consolidated multi-disciplinary. We focus on the integrative development of future intelligent responsive environments that enhance collaboration, creativity, and productivity in complex, multi-disciplinary design settings. Different from prior studies investigating team behavior, team performance and task efficacy, this research focuses on the quality of experience regarding: space and technology, built environment performance, and the mobility of people and their tools as a way to inform the development of intelligent responsive environments. The research team works collaboratively with the Responsive Environments group.
