BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Konstantinos-Alketas Oungrinis Associate Professor, School of Architecture, Technical University of Crete Director of the Transformable and Intelligent Environments Laboratory (TUC TIE Lab), School of Architecture, Technical University of Crete His work on dynamic, human-centered architecture involves research on kinetic structures, smart materials and responsive control systems for the creation of intelligent environments that can respond actively with 'sense' to the needs and wishes of people. His research specializes in transformable environments, activity-based design methods, time-space relationships, user-experience design, digital media and cultural heritage, educational environments and spaces within extreme environmental conditions. He has developed two specific approaches for the successful implementations of IT in design titled Spatial Economy and Sensponsive Architecture. His thematic areas of study are interdisciplinary, rooted in the field of architecture and from there on branching out mainly into the domains of psychology, neuroscience, interactive media, robotics and computer science. His is the Principal Investigator at 23 research programs and 21 pilot research programs. He has 6 book publications and is the author of 67 book chapters, journals and papers. He also writes sci-fi novels. In 2008 he received the Europe 40 under 40 Architecture Award and has received since 12 more national and international awards and distinctions.
