Constantinos Miltiadis is an architect and computational designer. He studied at the National Technical University of Athens with the thesis "interactive kinetic structures" in 2012, and later earned an MAS degree in Architecture and Information at ETH with "project Anywhere”. He is currently a researcher at the Institute of Architecture and Media TU Graz. Interested in developing novel spatial media, his work focuses on real-time and interactive design.

Virtual Architecture


What if you, being here, could be a virtual presence anywhere.

Virtual Architecture


What if you, being here, could be a virtual presence anywhere.
Virtual architecture in a real-time, interactive, fully immersive, augmented reality environment

What if you, being here, could be a virtual presence anywhere?
Virtual Reality technology made possible to immerse and experience worlds and environments perviously unthought of. Speculating on this premise, we can envision that technology can serve to create a novel form of space and therefore architecture, where users can participate with their own bodily presence in an environment that augments aspects of both the real and virtual. To prove the previous, the author developed “project Anywhere” where multiple users can immerse vividly in a virtual, interactive world, which they can control and manipulate in real-time. Virtual space, with its emergent properties of heterotopy and heterochrony, serves as a novel platform for architectural speculation. Virtual architecture, the content of these environments, is immaterial but sensible, and unhindered by the limitations of the physical world can be made to resemble -transport us to- anything real or imaginable…
