A fundamental challenge in design research today is to define the design programmes
that suggest how we can turn our day’s scientific knowledge and technical development
into design for new forms of living that will provide foundations for a more
sustainable way of life.

As natural science and engineering science introduce new materials and new
technology, there is an increasing need to explore their possibilities and consequences
for the design of our future living environments.

In this book we discuss and display efforts to meet this challenge by connecting
architecture, textile and fashion design, and interaction design in explorations of the
expressional possibilities of modern technology for dressing, furnishing and building
for adaptive and responsive forms of future living.
