    Il­lu­mi­na­tion of build­ings with pro­jec­tors or media fa­cades has be­come a pop­u­lar means of vi­sual com­mu­ni­ca­tion: in the art con­text, many fes­ti­vals around the world ex­hibit pieces, and a grow­ing num­ber of ap­pli­ca­tions can be ob­served in the com­mer­cial con­text. As tech­nol­ogy ad­vances, the scale of il­lu­mi­nated sur­faces in­creases, the vi­sual per­cep­tion of ob­jects can be al­tered in real-time, and the use of sen­sors or smart phones en­ables the in­ter­ac­tion be­tween vi­su­als and the en­vi­ron­ment. Pa­ra­me­ters, such as tem­per­a­ture, move­ment or ges­tures drive the vi­su­als and allow peo­ple to per­ceive their body and the en­vi­ron­ment in a new way. In this paper, we pre­sent two aca­d­e­mic pro­jects, “Sen­si­tive Ta­pes­try” and “Pro­jected Re­al­i­ties”, which aimed at in­te­grat­ing above tech­niques into the ar­chi­tec­ture cur­ricu­lum and at lever­ag­ing the ar­chi­tect’s knowl­edge for a more seam­less in­te­gra­tion of in­ter­ac­tion and vi­su­al­iza­tion. The goal of both pro­jects was to cre­ate a novel ex­pe­ri­ence that arises from ar­chi­tec­ture aug­mented with dig­i­tal in­for­ma­tion, and from ar­chi­tec­ture that acts a user in­ter­face to re­veal in­for­ma­tion about the build­ing, its oc­cu­pants and its en­vi­ron­ment.
