PORTFOLIO


The dialectic relationship between different scales of action has been one of the most significant aspects in the theoretical discourse of architectural practice. An obvious and characteristic example of the importance of scale is the well-known S,M,L,XL book published in 1995 by OMA. The book includes a retrospective of OMA's work since 1975 including built work, non-built projects as well as essays, diaries and fairy tales all arranged in order of size with the book itself being an XL object of its kind. Nevertheless, the issue of scale does not necessarily stop in the idea of size. It is true that architecture is almost bound with the idea of dimension and sizing, no matter the extent of a project. However, the concept of scale is embedded in many more decision-making actions that are related with the design process. In almost every aspect of design, an omnipresent dialectic between a micro- and a macro- activity is existent. The architect's role can therefore be understood as one that manipulates this relationship in the numerous aspects of design. Through this portfolio, an effort is being made to unveil retroactively this latent dialogue between a micro- and a macro- state. It is argued that by comprehending the ubiquitous relationship between different scales in the process of architectural design, one can reconsider the magnitude of action that a project tends to impose. In this sense, a reconsideration of the whole idea around sustainability is carried out, simply by realizing the scales of effect that every decision has in the architectural design process. The portfolio is organized around seven acts, each one exploring a different aspect of a micro-macro relationship. Under each category, representative images of projects carried out during the 2010-11 academic year are presented, demonstrating the way that each project deals with the respective act. Therefore the projects are not organized in a linear way; they are rather deconstructed and arranged according to the different micro- macro-acts which are presented. The acts themselves are structured in a rather unsystematic manner, since the idea of order and scale can be re-evaluated either through a micro- or a macroscopic lens.

Architecture as management: Controlling design with parametric tools

Introduction This paper examines the notion of control and management in design focusing in the early 21st th century architectural scene. Since the birth of architecture as a profession around the 15 century, it has been associated with a form of control, trying to establish a sort of order over the city, each time favouring one or another social class. Throughout its history, architecture has undergone a number of shifts regarding its process of design and making. These two main processes have always been influencing one another based on the current methods and procedures of design on the one hand and regarding the specific know-how of construction and fabrication techniques. In the last two decades, the rapid rise of the digital media in all aspects of life has inevitably altered the way contemporary architecture is both being designed and implemented. Specifically, the recent trend in parametric and algorithmic design will be scrutinized, in an effort to see what kind of order do these design processes imply and what are the social/political/economic implications they might have. Today, there is a continually increasing level of complexity in every aspect of the design process: from the project commission to its design development and final implication a great amount of actors coming from very different areas are involved, thus changing radically the role of the architect as it was known until a few decades ago. It will be argued that architects today have a more managing role, trying to establish an order between the varieties of disciplines elaborated in the design process. The evolution of digital tools and parametric/algorithmic processes can potentially enhance and optimize this role SEMINAR: LABOUR, CITY, FORM [P. V. Aureli, M. Giudici]

Post-Conflict Urbanism: Lessons from Pristina, Kosovo Introduction The end of the war in Kosovo in 1999 marked the beginning of an accelerated urban redevelopment of the capital, Pristina. A plethora of buildings with illegal status, mainly because of the lack of building permits, started causing many social, infrastructural and security problems. In 2005 this became a serious urban and architectural challenge for Kai Vöckler, who was intrigued to visit the city after the current situation. Gradually, an initial personal interest led to the foundation of a NGO – Archis Interventions/Pristina – which began to deal with the amelioration of the existing situation without starting over on a tabula rasa as the governmental plans suggested. One of the outcomes of this research is a book published by Vöckler with Archis Interventions describing the whole process of the trip to Pristina, the research done and the actions taken there. More importantly though the last part of the book called “Discourse” consists of a series of texts that discuss what can be learned from Pristina and the possibility of contemporary urban approaches in post-conflict areas, something already suggested by the title of the book; it is not only about Pristina, but Pristina is everywhere.
