Living Architecture Testbeds

By Philip Beesley and Matt Gorbet

Living Architecture Systems Group

This publication provides background on the development of the LASG’s testbeds and the theoretical frameworks that shape their existence in the world. It describes the practical experience of working with the testbeds, including how agreements between the LASG and its testbed partners are developed and managed over time. Finally, it offers some examples of technical, methodological, and philosophical lessons from existing testbeds before concluding by describing what future generations of testbeds might look like. More information about individual testbeds can be found in the folios dedicated to each on the LASG website.
