The emerging interdisciplinary field of mechatronics and integrated technical systems is becoming increasingly important to architecture. Technology comprised of sensors, controllers and actuators allows architects to reconsider the relationship between buildings and their environment, as well as between buildings and their users. The architectural education is finding itself on an uncharted territory while trying to introduce interdisciplinary collaboration into its own curricula. This paper will present outcomes of the research seminar conducted at University of Belgrade, Faculty of Architecture focused on the role of mechatronics and integrated technical systems in architecture. The discussion will focus on the notion of spatial adaptability and three possible reasons why architectural elements should move: efficiency, aesthetics and functionality.
