BLOCKERTIES

Urban Design and Research Studio Work, The Bartlett, UCL (Ongoing) | Concept Design, Physical / 3D Model, Exhibition Installation RC17 Led by Dr. Daniel Kohler, October 2017 - October 2018

The project aims to link the blockchain theory of distribution with property issues and in extend architectural design decisions in urban scale. In an urban design context, this project investigates the new potentials of urban form connected to the application of the logic of the blockchain to urban design. Transferring the blockchain’s core concepts of data distribution through ledgers, to patterns of shared and private owned spaces it can lead to what we propose as polyphonic spaces, with overlapping uses. Urban realm, designed as a chain, initiates with the binary condition of private and shared but handles it as way to interact, through nesting, its initial components. Finally, the blockchain theory is capable of challenging architecture by shifting the weight from individual elements of composition to compound entities (block) that incorporate all the information needed.

When the assemblies are seen as part of cities there can be detected patterns of public sectors, where centrality is high. When the arrangements are seen as buildings, the connectivity indication shows the accessibility of the rooms as well as the privacy derived from it. The higher the accessibility the more shared a room becomes.

SCRAPLINE

Architectural and Urban Design Diploma Thesis, NTUAthens | Field Research, Concept Design, Structural Analysis, Physical / 3D Model, Exhibition Installation October 2016 - July 2017

Towards the direction of creating a new identity, the thesis project examines the opportunity of establishing new industrial processes within the heart of Athens utilizing the abundant scrap metal arriving illegally at Eleonas. Although scrap metal is the main driving economic force of Eleonas, the only beneficiaries are tradesmen and not the municipality. The initial research led into an exploration of the mechanism that created the built environment, economy, character and social structures of Eleonas as well as the material properties of metal. The masterplan seeks to make use of the unique properties of metal to reconstruct the identity of the local urban fabric of the region.

The masterplan is a direct imprint of the linear process of scrap recycling, from the collection until being fully reused. At the same time, the line, as a spatial tool, defines space and is seen as a stitch that connects and ‘heals’ the area. So as for this process to be fully autonomous a research centre is introduced at the beginning of the process, which also acts as a landmark and an attraction point, and an energy production centre at the end which ensures the full autonomy of the system.

NICOSIA’S (W)RIGHT BLOCK

Architectural and Urban Design Studio Work, NTUAthens | Concept Design, Physical / 3D Model, Exhibition Installation October 2015 - February 2016

Introducing a new urban block Nicosia. The urban blocks are divided into three main typologies based on the design tools point, line, and plane. Correspondingly, the blocks are classified into open, semi-closed and closed depending on the permeability at the commercial ground floor level and whether public realm can infiltrate the private spaces. In the open type, ground floor remains permeable in all directions with the element of a tall tower for vertical movement distribution. In line type, the main feature is a longitudinal public space, while at the closed type an atrium is created with movement on the inside.

RE-OCCUPYING THE VOID

Planning and Design of Urban Space Studio Work, NTUAthens | Field Research, Concept Design, Strategic Planning, Small Scale Interventions October 2014 - February 2015

After having conducted research in the area, through archives, fieldwork, interviews and a personal evaluation of the existing social and spatial conditions, we created a dense network of new activities. Trying to meet the needs of the various social groups, we decided to organise them under commonly accepted actions that will revitalise the area. In other words, since the existing activities are either inactive or under-active, new activities are introduced to redefine the identity of the area and to bring the inhabitants closer.

Food kitchens are operating worldwide. In Greece they are translated into ‘sissitia’. They operate under the aegis of NGOs, municipality, private operators but commonly under church. Equally important with the voluntary work is the contribution of the food bank. Composed primarily of charities, non-profit farmers, distributors and retailers, who in their daily work process have excess food they cannot sell.

Multiple empty apartments and vacant buildings are reused to shelter the homeless. These are managed by the municipality.

BLOCK OF FLATS

Architectural Design Studio Work, NTUAthens | Field Research, Concept Design, Physical/3D Model February 2013 - July 2013

Unlinking the concept of a typical polykatoikia from the exchange policy and redefining it through a bipolar design concept. Primarily, the building gets a mixed level section with double-levelled apartments and secondarily establishes new forms of relations between public and private space. The ground floor becomes a public passage and the apartments are interconnected. The design is oriented to change the ugly, yet fascinating, Athenian cityscape through the definition of new building shapes, the curiosity about the unfamiliar, the fresh perspective of the stroller and the better living conditions of the residents. Eventually, it has been planned to determine a new attitude.

LABORATORY AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM

Architectural Design Studio Work, NTUAthens | Concept Design, Physical/3D Model February 2014 - July 2015

Integrating a modern building into the highly preserved environment of Kerameikos cemetery is all about the choices. Laying or using the ground below the building creates a connection between the building and the landscape. A perforated cor-ten ribbon leading the visitor through the museum educates him about the exibits and the prosses the archaeologists are using with the findings. Through an incline ramp, the visitor is imported into the ribbon, creating an entrance to the archaeological site. The building volumes, that the ribbon crosses, are used as warehouses and laboratories by the archaeologists and the visitor can pass by or into them. An auditorium is also accessible by public for multiple cultural events.

Multifunctional Public Building Studio Work, NTUAthens | Physical / 3D Model Building, Structural Analysis, Detailing October 2014 - July 2015

The main concept in designing a public building is to create both public and private spaces with equal importance. Moreover, internal connectivity and ease of access to every part of the building, is what defines a functional and liveable building. The construction of the theatre, the core of the building, is made out of scaffolding components in order to ensure variability. Moreover, the floor is consisted of lifting platforms that can be either part of the stage or the seats creating a continually versatile environment.

CHANIA IN A LOOP

Urban Design Workshop | Concept Design, Strategic Planning, Small Scale Interventions August 2016

The project proposes a continuous route expressed by a tram and bike line that can better connect the entire system of city’s patches and all ‘in-between’ spaces in order to evolve the grid to meet the demands of the city of the future. It will be used as a tool that can respond to Chania’s needs: A. Disperse the focus form the historic centre to the real city core, ie. to reduce the segregation between the historic centre and the rest of the city B. Become a new infrastructural route that attracts and intensifies future demands and yet unfulfilled possibilities (ex. improve mobility, social spaces, temporary residential spaces for student etc.)
