The latest title in the V&A Contemporary series looks at groundbreaking interior design, art, and architecture. Responsive environments—spaces that interact with people who use or pass through them—have become ubiquitous lately. Lucy Bullivant provides an intriguing look at these cutting-edge spaces, from an installation in a shopping center that registers passers-by with patterns of colored light and sound, to an interactive artwork in the boardroom of a British TV network.

With insights drawn from the author's interviews with many of the designers featured, Responsive Environments will appeal to designers, students, and creative professionals, as well as anyone interested in interior design, architecture, and technology.
