Emotional design through digital technologies

Digital technologies have a constantly increasing influence on our daily lives, not only through different user interfaces and mobile tools, but also through digitally augmented surroundings.

By stimulating the human senses in sophisticated ways, technology can make experiences personal and emotionally powerful. This philosophy can also apply to buildings and the flow of people within them.

Multi-sensorial experiences can be used in the design of a more enjoyable and personalized journey throughout a building, but it can also have an influence our behavior and wellbeing.

Combining technology with emotional design means that people flow in the building can be supported with multisensory experiences. By utilizing digital technologies, these experiences can be modified very easily throughout building lifecycle to meet the changing needs of the tenants.
