    Gillian Hunt, UK, graduated from the University of Wales College, Cardiff in 1989 with a BA (Hon’s)-1st class in Architectural Design resulting in her work being reviewed in Architects Journal and Architectural Design the same year. She has worked as a freelance designer for a number of architectural practices on a variety of projects in the United Kingdom and Europe from 1983-1994. Gill attended the Mackintosh School of Art & Design from 1991-1993 gaining an M.Des. with Distinction. Glasgow University awarded Gill the Laurie Bequest Scholarship for her innov­ative project involving the use of ‘smart’ materials in creat­ing interactive, memorial artifacts as an alternative, sus­tainable system of ‘design for death’ in secular society. She is currently lecturing on a part time basis at the University of Wales College, Newport on the Contemporary Art Theory Course while undertaking a Ph.D. in Art and Design at CAiiA. Her work is concerned with the current conception and production of Intelligent Architecture and the rele­vance of Cybernetics in providing an alternative design methodology.This is examined through the work of cyber­netician Gordon Pask (1928-1995) being particularly con­cerned with the development of interactive systems in affording a model for the production of ‘aesthetically potent environments’.
