In the ubiquitous computing era, designers can now capitalise on real-time data to inform their design. Dynamic phenomenal changes in the environment, such as light, temperature, humidity, air quality and movement can be traced with sensors and visualised to inform the design process. These opportunities come with the advent of off-the-shelf sensors, microelectronics, smart phones, new and smart materials, and augmented reality tools.

With the aid of these tools, the studio engaged in the design process at the phenomenal level. Students developed an understanding of the turbulent world of atmospheric dynamics that shape our environments that lead to the conception of more subtly sensitive, responsive and energy conserving design solutions.
