I cannot describe how many hours I have spent with friends, team members and architects talking about architecture. How many different opinions I have heard and I have expressed. The truth is that after all the experiences and the years that past studying architecture the feeling that I have is the same one as that when I was playing “the Sims” on my computer when I was 12 years old. The love of creation. The satisfaction and the fulfillment I feel when I create a space where people live and evolve. A space that it is not only practical and offers the necessary functions, but a space that evokes feelings and sensations. A space that is a machine and a piece of art. The biggest lesson I have learned about myself, during these years, is that through my personal hard work I can achieve common goals that I share with a group. By setting my expectations high and discovering that I can overcome what I thought were my limits, I can always find innovative solutions. What challenges me the most is finding my inspiration. From the shapes in the clouds to heavy machinery or even a simple box, as Picasso said: “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN ΙX a – ARCHITECTURAL, BUILDING CONSTRUCTION AND URBAN DESIGN TOPICS

REDESIGN OF THE HARBOR OF LAVRIO

www.youtube.com/watch?v=U55c8FwY67k The specific project was aimed at the various requirements, functions and aspects of an architectural project that have to be considered in a co-ordinated way and to be met in harmony. It also aims at managing professional - like conditions. The large scale of the project, the increased demand for critical choices and presentations, the limited working time, are parameters that are similar to an architectural competition and require intelligent prioritization and time management.


Team members: Maria Georgiou, Danae Mauridi, Florentina Tsakiri, Iakovina Christoforou REDESIGN OF THE HARBOR OF LAVRIO DUTH

The work is structured in three phases: 1. General Regulatory Plan (1/500) 2. Editing the proposals in a characteristic selected part of the set (drawings 1/200) 3. Detailed plans (appropriate drawing scales) in representative sub-sectors (facades, open-air zones, interior, etc.).

PANAGIOTIS KOKKORIS, THEONI XANTHI

The project calls for the exploration of a new model of comprehensive urban regulation under the pressure of continuous rapid changes in the economic, social and productive conditions of our country. Within the framework of the three aforementioned objectives, student groups are called to prepare a comprehensive proposal for a complex design (architectural synthesis, urban planning, environmental design, construction, social and, of course, economical managment) of an extensive urban area.

REDESIGN OF THE HARBOR OF LAVRIO

Our synthesis could be described as a theme park. The great expanse and history of our region has prompted us to its partition. Initially, the cultural background of the old factory and mines in this region was a key factor in creating a cultural area, not in the form of the “soulless” museum, but by creating spaces (interior and exterior, a museum at the center of the composition and an outdoor pedestrian road) that are interactive. So, alongside the visitor’s education, there is the empiric experience, which we consider more important. Also, in the cluster of cultural sites, we created a building that is linked to the main museum, used for periodical exhibitions, as well as a sports academy for rowing, near the coastal front of the composition.

16

In addition, due to the location of the plot, our goal was to unite our design with the port of Lavrio and the terminal suburban station of Attica. Due to intense touristic and commercial activity, we decided that a complex of small shops and services, linked with the city’s activities, would be a key economic core for the region. Lastly, we took in consideration the importance of harbors for the promotion of culture and in combination with our intention to create a large green space, we used a site from the old factory of Lavrio as well as the rest of the outdoor space and we designed a theme park of plants. By region you can meet all kinds of trees, bushes and spices. We imagined it as a gathering point of all the maritime trade routes, which brings together colors, aromas, and even flavors from around the world.

The studio course focuses on a landscape, rich in thermal mineral springs, at a remote mountainous area of the Prefecture of Xanthi, near the borders between Greece and Bulgaria. The site becomes a kind of platform to devise structures and also the physical context for analysis and design of special facilities. A key aim of the design studio consists the concept of an holistic integration of architecture into the specific natural environment, associated with the existence of thermal mineral springs in the area. Facilities: thermal spa with a small scale accommodation infrastructure / hotel. The constructions demand a gradual "dilution" to the landscape and their transformation into a "walk-passage"

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN ΙΧb – ARCHITECTURE IN THE LANDSCAPE – NEW TECHNOLOGIES IN ARCHITECTURE

THERMAL BATHS

The synthetic theme is designed and organized around the region of hot springs in the remote mountainous area of ​​"Thermes" of the Prefecture of Xanthi near the border between Greece and Bulgaria. The main concern of the project is the design and integration into the particular environment of the site of the facilities related to the existence of hot spas in the area. It is a complex that in a few words emerge from the earth like the thermal water of the mountain.

STUDENT PROJECT

In particular, the main building, which includes all the bathing facilities together with their common rooms, the reception area, the library, the administration offices, the restaurant and a large communal space that functions as a common area and as a possible exhibition space. The main objective was the design of a building, which from the level of the road will not block the visual, and for this reason all the functions were placed on a vertical axis, splitting the earth. At the upper levels we find the "dry" communal areas (reception, library, reception area, office) and on the roof there is the restaurant so that it can also be visited individually, without necessarily entering the whole bath complex. At the lower levels are various thermal pools, with various temperatures, as well as other areas of relaxation and pampering.

2018

The hotel facilities are located east of the main building and under a large public square that hosts two large outdoor pools. The rooms with the square create a special relationship and facade due to the engravings that we created. The basic communication of the rooms with the basic volume is made by the level of the bathing facilities, through an underground corridor. At the far end of the composition a balcony was designed as a retreat and a place of self-concentration.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN VII

ARCHITECTURAL CENTER IN XANTHI

The Architectural Center is located in the city center and specifically in the area of the Governor’s Square, close to the Central Square. The East-West axis of the plot has a three meters difference in its altitude, amongst other contradictions.

2016

STUDENT PROJECT

A rather dominant opposition is the strong presence of the urban fabric on the western front, in Konstantinos Benis Street, in contrast to the cultural ring of the eastern front and the strong presence of the park and the natural element. In the already existing empty land the pedestrian accesses are made mainly by the diagonals of the plot serving a short bypass of the two roads.

26

Considering the above and based on further analysis of the area where the plot is located, we came up with the basic idea for the design of the Architectural Center in Xanthi. Our main intension was to intensify the cultural ring, thus we turned the building on the axis of the Governor’s Square.

ARCHITECTURAL CENTER IN XANTHI

2016

Τhe structure of the building is like an embrace that leads the walkers directly in the building, as an extension of their main course. This turn to the Governor’s Square, in combination with the square-platform we created at the entrance of the building, manages to harmonize and unify the exterior space of the building with the surrounding environment.

28

The structure of the building also helps to bring the greenery from the park to the plot. At the same time, the basic idea for our solution is the suspension of the building in some sections, so as to maintain the existing paths of pedestrians joining the two streets. In this way we also do not block the visual contact with the greenery from the level of 0.00 to +3.00.

The functions of the cultural center are divided into different levels, leaving the museum on the upper floors and the other functions at +3.00 and -1.00, in order to allow to them to be open regardless of the visiting hours of the museum, as well as their direct access from the busy city side at 0.00. The independent character of 0.00 level is increasing the square, created by the use of pylons.

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN XANTHI

This topic identifies the character of the school as an “open school” to the community. The concept of an open school has been the field of wide-ranging questioning over the past decades - international and in our country, which aimed at redefining the general role of the school. This questioning aims to the enrichment of school functions and activities beyond the “narrow” educational, so the school space turns into a dynamic unit for the neighborhood, the village and the city.

Analyzing the area around the plot, we came across a natural landscape with intense green and water. This could only play a decisive role in our design. Our first wish was the creation of a primary school, which will be harmonized in its environment and become one with it. We wanted to create two central yards, each of which would have a smaller scale. The building is easily accessible either by ramps or by natural hills.

At the same time, however, the ramps, due to orientation, also act as filters between the school and the public roads. As for the main body of the school, the purpose was to create a corridor as a space for living and not just a corridor with pre-arranged rooms. For this reason, the library is located along the corridor with scattered spaces of reading, as well as some rooftops of the classes, which create lofts.

These courtyards are planted with big trees to provide shade. Between the two main yards, centrally, there is the canteen, which has both external and internal access. Finally, at the level of the classrooms, there is an outdoor space like a kiosk, which acts as an entrance from the southern pedestrian street, as a space for interactive lessons and activities, and as an open-air, exteerior relaxation space of the building.

DUTH

The corridor and the lofts, also aim at an internal space of play for children during breaks. The classrooms are all south oriented in the main building, with five metallic “cubes” attached to it. In the three of these “cubes” are the administration offices, while the other two are the workshops of visual arts and experiments and the environment. Although the above spaces are all interiors, there are many exits to the yards scattered throughout the complex.

TOBACCO MUSEUM IN XANTHI

2017

STUDENT PROJECT

In a city with a deep history on cultivation, processing and trade of tobacco, main theme was the design of the Tobacco Museum in Xanthi.

36

On a very small plot, with two preserved walls of an old tobacco warehouse, we faced intense challenges in designing a building that will harmonize and highlight the memories of the old building. Our intention was to create a single bulk in which the museum functions (permanent and periodical exhibitions, multipurpose hall amphitheater, educational spaces, library, administration offices) evolved, while our goal was to let the walls of the old tobacco warehouse remain as exhibits in an open air , public and accessible space for everyone.

Thus, in the space surrounding the walls, we created an open-air small amphitheater, utilizing the old altitudinal differences that were used by the tobacco warehous. At the same time, as we believe that museum uses will not be a daily visit by the citizens, we designed a cafeteria and restaurant, keeping distance from the walls so that they are not damaged or destroyed, but within the space they create. That way, a visitor will have the opportunity to experience on a daily basis the glamor of the old tobacco warehouse.

URBAN DESIGN

TRANSFORMATIONS OF THE URBAN LANDSCAPE OF KAVALA

40

The study area constitutes part of the south sea-front of the city, forming a peculiar junction with the urban fabric. In the area there are particularly auxiliary buildings and warehouses. The one year design studio proposes the demolition of the building fabric inside the site, releasing the area for its redevelopment into a single public place, at the same time, transforming it into an environment, designed to be used for cultural events, recreation, soft sporting activities, walking and relaxation. The large oblong building situated at the waterfront exempted from demolition; students asked to manipulate the building envelope and structure, reversing – revealing its key structural components, in order to reshape – transform it into an essentially elevated public space. The study area becomes a kind of a "platform" for the development of structures and configurations; In this context, the key design challenges are: the restoration of the city's relationship with the sea, the visual and functional connection of the study area with the urban fabric, and ultimately the formation of a new identity for the area.

The public space is directly linked to the delimitation of the emptiness, which is the primary composite requirement of every building regardless of its scale and program.

42

The primary objective of the composition was to create routes in which points of interest are evolved. The main road is a long square, where at the beginning and the end are formed special spaces for aromatic plants placed in the water.

The building cooperates from the south with a solid square of concrete, ideal for city events and exhibitions, while from the north with an amphitheater, combined with a wooden deck system for wandering near the water.

In addition, the interaction of the building with the various paths, offer different visual sightings and views. At the end of a basic course, we designed an observatory of the entire composition as well as the entire city.


Team members: Maria Georgiou, Danae Mauridi, Florentina Tsakiri, Iakovina Christoforou TRANSFORMATIONS OF THE URBAN LANDSCAPE OF KAVALA DIMITRIS POLYCHRONOPOULOS

We used clean engravings to emphasize the different qualities and character of each space. All over the synthesis there are places of interest and smaller scale stops.

This creates the feeling that the sea has passed behind our intervention, with the exception of a section where a small grove that acts as a green space for the city and two basketball courts were created.

All in all the entire complex acts as a bridge and a coastal pedestrian walk , combining sport activities, exhibitions, outdoor cinema and theater, and a place for relaxation for the entire city of Kavala.

At the southern end of the complex there are tennis courts and public water pools for sports activities. As for the historical wall of the city, the whole complex we have designed is at a distance from it.

The course focuses on the architectural design of a relatively small building complex designed to serve special social, cultural and commercial uses in order to integrate with the surrounding uses and functions.

2015

STUDENT PROJECT

This complex, which will be a public building, will house multiple functions. An important group of them will include a combination of functions such as recreation, restaurants and cafes, education, audience gathering and youth activities. The other group deals with trade and will set up a small market.

46

All of this will be framed by appropriate public spaces that will welcome or serve corresponding outdoor uses. The design is aiming to become the reception area of​​ the everyday life of the inhabitants of the neighboring and the wider surrounding area.

Finally, on the diagonal axis, the common room was placed in the center of the overall composition, as we believe it is the most important clue that gives life to the complex, but also to the whole city.

One key zone, is the "triangle" that is created and there is an "L" shaped-like building that houses the shops, the multipurpose room and the cafeteria.

An important and key factor of the design are the altitudes that are created. They succeed each other, creating meeting places, access areas and greenery.

In the other "triangle" zone, with a new vertical line to the main diagonal axis, are the outdoor cinema and the showrooms.

The combining element of the complex is the roof that connectstheshopsandtheshowrooms,whileatthesame time the centrality of the common room is highlighted.

All the spaces are located three meters above the patio, at the same level as the access roads from both sides of the plot, which presents this altitude specificity. The facades of the building, although different from each other, are in harmony with the whole and create different canvas, due to the apartments. On the roof, a space with fixed seats, drapes and pergolas was created for the various uses of the students. The dorm room, located outside the main building and in conjunction with the store, are on the front of the main road and have direct access to the main patio so as to serve the city and the complex directly.

This is a project on the design of the outer shell and the interior of an existing building and the back exterior space in a creative work place for children. A simple given shell is suggested to focus on the processing and complete study of the site. Thus, the detailed design of the space and the shell is sought in order to serve the requirements of the particular function, as well as the search and clarification of those general and special elements of the design that will give a distinct style to the whole project and will give the desired atmosphere to the suggested space.

Our goal was to create a building that would act as a pole of attraction for the local community. For this reason, in addition to the theatrical workshop, we decided to include in our building a public library, an outdoor exhibition area and an outdoor small amphitheater. Taking into consideration the already existing bearing body, we have defined as our basic layout, in the smallest part defined by the columns, the linear path joining the back exterior space with the pedestrian street, thus creating a public gallery.

This was accomplished by creating a complex library that follows the steps of the staircase that leads to the basement, that will be open during the summer months for outdoor performances. In the basement, apart from the small amphitheater and the public library, there is a public reading room and a small refreshment room, as well as a storage space, private and public toilets (when the theater is not open, the people visiting the library willbe served by public toilets).

The roof was designed so that it could be visited and used for exhibitions or performances, using an external staircase from the pedestrian street and at the same time we considered it a fifth aspect of our entire composition. Thus, with the help of some lines from the floor plans and the facades, it was divided and parts were raised as much as needed to get plantings and other materials (glass, gravel). All three modular levels are accessible both with stairs and with an elevator.

In the rest of the floor there is the space for the performances, the stage, the folding seats, which by means of a special construction can be folded down, by leaving the floor free, when there is no show. The back exterior space was exploited by the creation of a small amphitheater, which ends up to the basement. In the gallery we considered necessary and useful the existence of a public and free library.

The aim of the course is to create a coffee and communal space, within the campus, so that it can be used by the student community on a daily basis. The plot is opposite the Architecture school and it does not show any particular altitudinal differences, but different views, from the two main sides of the plot. On the one hand, a particular ridge of the neighboring mountains, while on the other hand a large field.

In a modern student place, we thought it is necessary to have a space with high-tech computers for study use. We also considered the design of the exterior space, as Greece is a country that is known for its favorable weather. Thus, the altitudinal differences we meet internally, exist and in the external space and a key element is the pergola, under which tables are placed.

Our solution is to convert the particular study area into a cultural attraction and not just touristic one. The main objective was the revival of the existing constructions and the dynamic restoration, their reintegration into today, in a way that addresses the modern man and his needs. Our study area can be seen as the end or the beginning of the complex, so our proposals correspond to this finding. Initially, we suggest creating a wooden pier in the sea, combined with the existing one, so that ships from nearby areas can bring visitors to the spot, helping the general public to get to know the location better. Also on the existing pier we created a ramp for the disabled. Moreover, in order to create an association on the East-West axis, we use the existing cave in the rock through the tunnel. This join is achieved by the small widening of the cave, the installation of an auxiliary grid floor and the creation of a platform to the west of the coast. We consider it to be a strong proposition that will attract many visitors, not only due to the tunnel’s operation, but also because the narrow width of the cave causes a different sensation, and information will be provided through audiovisual means for the minerals processed in the mining complex.

Additionally, in the area where the small buildings - walls, which were probably used to control and record the exported material, we recommend the creation of a canteen. It is the only enclosed space that we propose and is made at that particular point because it is the only space where previously existed buildings. The canteen is a metallic selfsupporting construction and at no point comes into contact with the preserved buildings. It is a small recreation area that combined with a semi-open space created at the level of +3.00 can host workshops during the summer months. The walls at this point are used as monuments and no construction is placed on them. Wanting to create a vertical union between the various levels, we propose a short course with stairs and platforms at different levels and different directions. It is a small recreation area that combined with a semi-open space created at the level of +3.00 can host workshops during the summer months.

The walls at this point are used as monuments and no construction is placed on them. Wanting to create a vertical union between the various levels, we propose a short course with stairs and platforms at different levels and different directions. This proposal was made because of the different views that the area provides in the opposite directions. Finally, at the level of +15.00, following the shape of the rock we create some seats, a sheltered resting place for the end of the tour at the mining complex. Also, at the same level as the landing ladder, we recommend repairing its damaged parts. In conclusion and on the basis of our proposed solutions, we wish to use the original elements as monuments of technical culture, to create a walk that allows the visitor to discover the complex, enjoy the natural landscape but also learn about the history, the significance of the complex and the role of the particular area for the loading and unloading of the ore.

KAVALA’S LIGHTHOUSE DIMITRIS POLYCHRONOPOULOS DUTH

The design is made at a registered site for Kavala, the lighthouse of the Panagi. It is an outdoor space with very small dimensions. At the end of the historic wall there is a unique view, both to the sea front of the city, from which it looks from above and the traditional settlement in the Hersonissos of Panagia, which grows around it. The aim of our composition is to preserve the existing lighthouse and its surrounding space. So we raise another pole of attraction and protect a place closely linked to the city itself. The public open space that we propose consists primarily of an intermediate reception area, a linear path that functions as a transitional space from the road to the formed public space and at the end it develops into a vertical union with the sea. On its extension, we find a small-scale square where, in the center of this area, we find the lighthouse. The lighthouse is open and accessible to the public as it also acts as a living space. Continuing the linear course there are the constructions we face in front of the wall, which create points-viewing platforms open to the sea front and the city and achieve the vertical union with the sea. We create a space of quiet relaxation and contemplation.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_gfRRIMf-I Proposal in a closed competition for the Institute of Cancer Research - CCRI, Cyprus This is a donation from GEORGE AND KAITY DAVID, the George and Kaiti David family to the University of Cyprus. The building will be build on Campus campus in Athalassa, Nicosia


CYPRUS CANCER RESEARCH INSTITUTE

After determining and evaluating the critical conditions of the project, the idea of ​​creating a garden and less of a building that would be imposed with its architecture, was born. Without underestimating the intention of designing a modern and innovative, distinctive and original building, the heart and identity of it is transferred out of it into an environment that is essentially dedicated to remembering a person, and provokes reflection and feelings through the beauty and power of nature.

The main idea could therefore be framed as “a research building for life and a dedicated garden of memory”. The building was built around a northern garden and turned towards him, with the building block occupying the south and west side of the plot. The whole environment was designed and a natural embankment in the north was created from the excavation grounds and for protection from the traffic of the roundabouts. The embrace of the building created three wings. To the east, the entrance and reception wing, on the main inflow side, coming from the University, but also from where the presence of the building is perceived.

South, the second and main arm with the main research labs and the management floor. While in the third to the west, the two other research units, and the researchers, are placed in the immediate vicinity. A shell was created that surrounds the building, providing protection to the south, west and east. The shell creates a perimeter semiopen gallery that provides beneficial shading to the building and its immediate surroundings. The roof of the shell is planted providing the corresponding environmental benefits and extending the green area of ​​the design.
