Conference Paper
The work presented celebrates traditional tartan patterns and their design parameters, as well as the numerous technological achievements in woven textiles. The designers propose a woven textile (as applied in the garment presented) with the capability to illuminate threads in both warp and weft directions. The work described investigates the creat...

Abstract 'Ambient Terrain'explores the application of large-scale, sensor-based site analysis. The research develops various techniques dealing with the logging, storage, retrieval, analysis, and representation of sensor and image-based data. These techniques could be utilized in concert with traditional site preparation and site information gather...

are in great need of acquiring, re-using and re-purposing visual and textual data to recreate, renovate or produce a novel target space, building or element. This come in align with the abrupt increase, which is lately observed, in the use of immersive VR environments and the great technological advance that can be found in the acquisition and mani...

Elisava Insights is a knowledge pack of 75 challenges faced by humans and the planet, to be used as an inspirational strategic foresight tool and as a starting point for collective dialogue and transdisciplinary synergies with stakeholders. Organized in the five transdisciplinary impact areas where Elisava Research has its expertise, we have ident...
Conference Paper
Humans are capable of identifying and categorizing objects in their environment with the aid of their sensory organs. DualSkin is a wearable which equips the user with ambient electric field sensing. The aim of the project is to develop a new sense that will increase peripersonal space, alter the human perception and their relationship between elec...
Conference Paper
Touch Mood is a wearable technology project which obtains skin signals from subjects via GSR and an MLX90614 thermal camera. The system gives real-time feedback of the subjectâǍŹs emotional state via the embedded RGB LEDs and nitinol wire enabled transforming fabric array.
Conference Paper
This project explores ways to augment the sense of awareness. The human senses are exceptional, this project attempts to empower them in order to augment the senses further. The project aim is to elevate the senses by deleting distractions. Although the main sense that has been augmented is awareness, the project is offering a device for the other...
Conference Paper
ChakraSuit is an experimental wearable which aids in finding the best location for meditation, enabling one to learn about the interaction between the natural environment, sound, and the body. The prototype continuously listens to ambient sounds, and translates the identified audio frequencies to vibration on several points along the spine which co...
Conference Paper
Syn(es)thetic Reality explores a new way of sensing the world by understanding sounds through colors. It looks to simulate projective chromesthesia, an experience of seeing colors involuntarily as a result of sound input. The project achieves this through an augmented reality web application to be run on mobile phones via a wearable device. By disp...

The applications of environmental data for city design are many and varied, relying primarily on their accuracy, density, and frequency. The key factor limiting these aspects are feasibility and cost of implementation (LEE 2009). Drawing on previous research in the field of spatial sensor deployment, this paper seeks to propose strategies for the e...

ECOlogical building enveLOPES: a game-changing design approach for regenerating urban ecosystems ECOLOPES is an innovative HORIZON 2020 funded research project proposing a radical change for city development: instead of minimizing the negative impact of urbanisation on nature, we aim at urbanisation to be planned and designed such that nature – including humans – can co-evolve within the city. We envisage a radically new integrated ecosystem approach to architecture that focuses equally on humans, plants, animals, and associated organisms such as microbiota. ECOLOPES will provide the technology that will help to achieve this vision. Urbanization constitutes a major environmental issue of the 21st century. Within cities, densification, the decrease of green open spaces, and a continued reliance on grey infrastructure approaches result in increasing separation of people from nature and decreased access to ecosystem services. This decreases the livability of cities and reduces human well-being. Current approaches fall short in providing breakthrough solutions, because they perpetuate the human-nature dichotomy due to anthropocentric design. In ECOLOPES we propose a radical change for city development: instead of minimizing the negative impact of urbanisation on nature, we aim at urbanization to be planned and designed such that nature – including humans – can co-evolve within the city. We envisage a radically new integrated ecosystem approach to architecture that focuses equally on humans, plants, animals, and associated organisms such as microbiota. Over the next few years, ECOLOPES will provide the technology that will help to achieve this vision. In ECOLOPES, we focus on the envelope, the building enclosure. We will transform the envelope into an ecolope, a multi-species living space for four types of inhabitants, humans, plants, animals, and microbiota. ECOLOPES will develop the core technologies for designing ecolopes in a systematic way, considering the needs of both humans, as well as of plants, animals and beneficial microbes. ECOLOPES will make biological knowledge available for the architectural design process, to find architectural solutions that enable synergies and limit conflicts between the inhabitants. The ecolopes designed by this multi-species approach will restore the beneficial human – nature relationships in cities. A key element of ECOLOPES will be an Information Model that integrates ecological and architectural knowledge, data and models into a data-integrated design recommendation system. The ECOLOPES Information Model will guide the development of the ECOLOPES Computational modelling and simulation environment, to make biological and architectural knowledge available for design. The ECOLOPES team is comprised of 6 partners, including TU Munich, TU Wien, University of Genoa, TECHNION, software technology company MCNEEL, and Studio Animal Aided Design.
