Abstract

This paper explores the 'architectonic systems' that future research spaces will become. Building from McLuhan's conception that "we become what we behold" we propose that future research spaces will enrich the experiences of individual researchers and create new opportunities for sharing research and building communities. These research spaces will be graduated and granular; more or less material, abstract, private or public and transferable; and adaptable and responsive to the researcher and their context. The paper will identify and reason alternatives to the existing isolation of the researcher characteristic of Augmented Reality, and the displacement of the research artefact typical of the Internet of Things, instead providing opportunities to create and share spaces that emphasise the primacy of research material. The PATINA project will give individual researchers the opportunity to design their private, institutional and public research spaces; determine the spatial characteristics of the thresholds between their physical, digital and imagined environments; and provide the means to capture, record, replay and share their research in intuitive ways. Our paper explores the project's initial programmatic relationship conceived between the design of technologies and the design of research spaces.
