strings of string theory but having any number of dimensions
rather than one dimension.

What is the Next Revolution for?

industrial, technological, cultural, etc. paradigm shifts have had an immense effect on how architecture diveated.
with the evolution of neuroscience and the understanding of the human cognitive system, the next revolution has 
been happening since neurology came out of the clinic. 
The next revolution in architecture is the utilization of neuroscience to enhence a stronger unconscious dialogue
between the space and the human experience.

but, who are you? the technology will emerge, buildings will have the aboloty to know who we are.
buildings would interact with us as a brain, rather than a mass
through physioneural data and pattern recognition, with the powerful tools of deep learning and bci, the human 
brain becomes part of the systems buildings operate upon.

Spatial responsive behaviours acting upon the users’ unconscious.
This is an attempt towards quanifying and finding key correlations and causation behind architectural
elements and our experience. In other words, this project looks forward to introduce the human brain
as a fundamental part of an ecosystem consisting of a user, a space and a context.
On the other hand, analyzing human and spatial simultanously opens new doors towards how we think
about design, experience space and the materials we use. Celebrating the psychic ground of architecture,
this project can be situated in a branch of possibilities.

//Potential Application
+ a new design tool based on semantic search algorithms to help aid designers
+ as important as all analysis software, we should be able to analyze and predict how we 
would feel in a certain space
+ standing-up for space, this project can ultimately become a way to move towards a human agency in
architecture rather than celebrating human as a center.

Try before you buy.

We can read from the brain, but we can also write.
What if users are given the ability to experience a space before it is realized?
How would that change how we design?
How we percieve spaces
and the materiality we use to erect buildings


Throughout the research phase of the project, a research tool was required, and thus BraneSpace apparatus
was desined and fabricated to be later used to acquire user and space data and conclude with
further findings.

On a narrower scale, BraneSpace Lab was realized as a controled environment where parameters could be cut down for a more scientific/controlled canonical correlation analysis. IaaC BrainMaps

Considering architecture as a spatial condition that enables a certain experience or change in mood or emotions, why don’t architectural structures/system understand our mental state? Is it possible to quantify architectural affect? Workflow After all findings from experiments done at the BraneSpace Lab, the following step was to get the Lab to life, to realize what what the hypothesis. Using this logic, and learning from experience patterns and data analysis, the space produces sound and light [ color ] having the users brain data. The workflow shown below displays one of the combinations, in this case, to stimulate the user to a certain threshold, then relax, to stimulate again. A healthy brain is a brain at work. //Conclusion Cognitive neuroscience, various physiological sensors and programming power is capable of grasping signals from the human brain and the human body and transform it to an emotional state understanding. On this note, it becomes possible by gathering data on a spatial scale and overlap data of the physio- neural state to conclude with the relational efficiency through a neural network that functions as an assistant to finding these relations and create a space that responds to user’s experience/ emotions. // By linking physiological processes and mechanized assemblages directly, architecture becomes a robotic system that has unique behavioural traits and is tethered to humans; here, technology, rather than the body becomes the interface that negotiates between human cognition and a synthetic formal order of space; a transarchitecture. Architecture becomes the new body. >>> if this scheme renders architecture as a spatial construct that negotiates between human cognition and the environment through technological frameworks, the postarchitecture is the absence of this negotiation. Bibliography This diagram is more of a locus, a theoretical/technical/conceptual archeology of this project. From the early theories of autonomous architecture, artificial intelligence, participatory design, designed reality, machenization etc. to the most recent neuroscience research, put together with a combination of technologies and program, this schematic serves as an archepelago of moments, that were key to this project.
