The Device InFormation studio operated at the scale of the interior and the membrane of a building, looking for proposals that brings about very specific effects, while a being applicable to different environments. The proposals should in this way be considered design systems, addressing issues of design, production and performance. These design systems should make use of parametric principles on different levels, primarily considering the effect of spatial conditions, while implicating structural, organizational and production aspects. The formal effects should suggest functions and programs rather than be defined of them.
The AIF Device InFormation studio was the first semester of three in the AIF studio 2006-2007, run by Jonas Runberger assisted by Thomas Wingate. It was followed by the AIF Cell Tales and the AIF Architecture and Mass Media studios, run by Ulrika Karlsson and Erik Hökby.
The Architecture InFormation studio has a continuous research agenda that re-considers the history of systems and components in post- war 20th century architecture and further re-examines the implications of a cellular or componental approach in contemporary architectural design practice and aesthetic discourse.
