Soft Architecture Machines

In 1975 Nicholas Negroponte predicted the future of soft architecture machines, that won’t help us in the design process of architecture, but will be our living environment. The key to that will be the combination of the material substrate of the building with computational processes. Two aspects will play a key role in that: soft and cyclic. soft means the ability of the building’s materials to reshape and retaining memory of past forms. Cyclic refers to the material’s ability to assemble and disassemble as nature usually does.
