Interactive Ellie is a project that researches possibilities of future school buildings. This project explores possible interactions between people and their work environment. It all started at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Eindhoven. Ellie should increase the appreciation and create an unique relationship with the building.
All mentioned above can give a new meaning to the way people interact with their environments.
Ellie represents the building, she has feelings and emotions which are influenceable by her surrounding. One of these potential influences are the people that use the building. Using different interactions they can change the way Ellie feels, her behavior emanates from these feelings. It’s possible to build a individual relationship with Ellie, she will recognize persons and act different towards them.
