International research builds the case for "Interaction Narratives" based on the work of Maria Lorena Lehman
The following is a quote from a position paper presenting the results of an ongoing investigation into the phenomenon of interactive architecture:
“We argue that interactive buildings need comprehensive and consistent styles of interaction rather than a series of isolated and unrelated interaction events. Different people in various contexts require different sets of behavior from an interactive building. These sets are conceptualized as interaction narratives following the work of Maria Lorena Lehman.
[...] At the moment, narratives form the most developed theories that may account for a comprehensive way to design responsive architecture. We pose that interaction narratives currently are the best viewpoint from which to develop responsive and interactive architecture.”
