With today ubiquitous computing, architectural design is changing to fit today human needs and lifestyle, emotion is one of it and it's important in everyday life. To the concept of the architecture that able to senses human emotion, gives it ability of emotion intelligence, to know and response what human need - a part of Affective Computing. In Sensibility Space+, the experimental project of the concept, the system can sense simple human emotions through facial expression from image processing and analysis with OpenCV in Processing to identify emotion state by mouth and eyebrow movement. Then, computer sends signal to microcontroller (Arduino) - electronics and mechanics parts - to change architectural space by display modules (light, color, and form) to represent current user emotion.
