New Materiality-towards ‘Media Environments


Article presents media solutions providing new materiality of architectural spaces. Media solutions in architecture evolve in new forms. Articlepresentsboth the developmentof new technological solutionsas well as new ways of application of media solutions in relation toarchitectural form. The aim of the article is to show technical aspects of new materiality - intelligent materials, allowing transmission of changeable visual content (like powerglass, GKDmediamesh, IMAGIC WEAVE, TEXLON lexipix, ETTLIN lux, OLED technology) and interaction between a user and space, so as spatial aspects of this new materiality. The goal of the article is to stress that media solutions do not stay just in the vertical position of a media façade, but go deeper in the users’ environment creating digital canopies (called in the article “media umbrellas”) and complex media environments. “Media umbrellas” due to their horizontal positions make boundaries between private and public space, indoor and outdoor zones, more fluid. Depending on context they can serve various functions. They follow pedestrians, eliminate monotony of long walkways, indicate entrance zones and cover places making them more cosy and more unusual. These structures can constitute fixed elements of architectural surroundings and take part in temporary events, provoking discussions and showing new possibilities. The article presents all types of this kind of solutions to prove that intelligent materials applied in architectural structures can shorten the distance between building and human, and make the space not only more visible and more dynamic, but also more accessible and more friendly.
