But being honest is a condition of survival. From the outside, the point where interactive design and architecture meet looks very glamorous, with glimpses of fascinating shapes and exciting magic. It is like a cathedral where gifted craftspeople apply their different skills to a common lofty purpose. We imagine a master builder, the guild of stonecutters, painters, glassmakers. From the inside, the cathedral reveals itself to be a set of galleries in a mine. There is no master plan, no master builder; we vaguely follow a lode, digging like moles; there are occasional cave-ins, rare moments of excitement and the occasional nugget.
While there were many small technical findings, the main lesson was a metalesson: experimental technology cannot be right first go. Iteration is required to move forward. In this, all of our projects are partial successes because we learned something, and partial failures because, in attempting to add new elements, we were not fully prepared for them. Looking at them in retrospect, we realise how much we have learned that we could not have learned from books. With regard to inflatables, for example, we learned that sphere-shaped inflatables are expensive to make, and that inflatables smaller than a minivan collapse too rapidly when visitors enter and exit.
Looking in an extremely summary manner at the change in the picture of contemporary architecture, we can say that if the formula for the Modern Movement was rightly Neue Sachlichkeit (New objectivity), the formula for today cannot be other than New Subjectivity. And it is interactivity that is the key to this new subjectivity. Transparency used to be the aesthetic, and ethics the reason and technique of a world that wanted rationally to tackle an advance in civilisation in terms of quality of life for the great masses of industrial workers.
