Horizon2020 project

  MindSpaces is a Lighthouse project belonging to the S+T+Arts initiative (Science, Technology and the Arts). The main goal of the Starts is the inclusion of artists in innovation projects funded by the research programme Horizon 2020. The central objective of MindSpaces is to create the tools and develop the solutions for adaptive and inclusive spaces that dynamically adapt to emotional, aesthetical and societal responses of end users, creating functionally and emotionally appealing architectural design.

 Original 3D models of spaces are going to be developed by architects and artists and will be used as a basis to propose innovative, art-inspired outdoors environments for a city, indoors workspace and house re-design. The design ideas will be integrated artistically in AR/VR environments, which will be modified in real time in response to EEG, physiological (heart rate, galvanic skin response) and environmental (presence sensing, video monitoring) measurements of end users. 
This will lead to adaptive designs that immediately respond to users’ emotional, functional needs, resulting in improved, attractive city spaces (Pilot Use Case 1), inspiring and productive work environments(Pilot Use Case 2) and functional home interiors for seniors (Pilot Use Case 3).

 As part of the research team of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki we are dealing with space documentation and reconstruction, architectural design of the new spaces, platform evaluation and technical aspects of the tools used. I was also involved in developing proposals for an urban set up in Barcelona and colaborating with technical partners regarding the platform deployment.
