Peter Gall Krogh is educated as architect and is Professor in Design at the Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark. His work is marked by a continuous effort to bridge academic, commercial and social interests in experiments and research; pointing to solutions that enable people to pursue desirable and profitable cultural changes both large and small scale.
He has participated and led a wide range of educational programs and research projects in both academia and industry with the focus of integrating services, IT and physical artifacts and spaces. A pivotal point in this has been the research Centre for Interactive Spaces of which he is the co-manager. The educational programs are carried out both at the Aarhus School of Architecture and at Aarhus University.
His research, embedded with the practices of design and architecture, is based in interaction design for pervasive computing with a particular emphasis on tools and techniques for user involvement and the exploitation of bodily experiences and sensations for interacting with computers. His approach is rooted in a strong interest in spatial qualities and encompassed by the concept of Aesthetic Interaction.
Through the establishment of the Aarhus DESIS lab DOP lab (distributed and Open Production), the design of IT systems has become a means along many others in pursuit of sustainability through social innovation in both research and teaching.
