Architectural space is a key contributor to the perceptual world we experience daily. We present 'ParticleTecturc', a sounds pace installation system that extends spatial perception of ordinary architectural space through gestural interaction with sound in space. Particle'Tecture employs a particle metaphor to produce granular synthesis soundspaces in response to video-tracking of human movement. It incorporates an adaptive mechanism that utilizes a measure of engagement to inform ongoing audio patterns in response to human activity. By identifying engaging features in its response, the system is able to predict, pre-empt and shape its evolving responses in accordance with the most engaging, compelling, interesting attributes of the active environment. An implementation of ParticleTecture for gallery installation is presented and discussed as one form of architectural space.
