2011 Engineering Diploma Planning & Regional Development


About me

G

I have completed my studies at the Department of Planning and Regional Development, University of Thessaly, School of Engineering and I am currently writing my diploma thesis. The department has provided me with opportunities to work with the increasing spatial problems that face Greece and has imparted to me a spatial and urban awareness, affecting my everyday life and work. Confronting spatial problems in Greece has been particularly interesting, as the peculiar complexity of the planning laws and data require a delicate, careful and thoughtful management.

Though the department is not design-oriented, I’ve always been interested in the proper representation and appearance of my work, even in projects that did not required it. During 2011 I participated at the Erasmus program in the university of Complutense in Madrid, Spain, where I was involved primarily with analog photography and video. I am personally interested in everything that has a spatial aspect thus I am deeply interested in photography, video, travel, and languages.

urban physical planning projects


Urban Physical Planning Studio Ia group project

During the first stage, of the urban planning studio I, a delimitation of the area is intended as well as a careful record of the land uses and the essential features of the area. The mark of the urban area, the manmade and administrative enviroment. And the proposal of different urban development scenarios.

It follows the standard syntax studies and its performed in two stages. The first stage involves analyzing the existing situation, diagnose the problems, prospects and trends of the municipality and the wording of the Preliminary Proposal. The second is a detailed treatment of the scenario proposed according to the first stage.

During this studio, we investigated the eastern part of mountain Pelion. we investigated the area, collecting, analyzing and evaluating the current state of the area. Based on the synthetic vision of the cultural and natural reserve and its future prospects, a proposal is formed in order to achieve the sustainable growth of the area.

During this studio, we investigated the region of Lake Karla and the near settlements. The main aspects were the planning and modulation of the nearest settlements based on the needs of the conduction of the Mediterranean Games and the addressing of the spatial impacts of the reconstitution of the lake’s reservoir.

The aim of this study, entitled "Planning for Special Areas - insular area", is to draft a comprehensive study of spatial planning at the supra-scale examination of a special category space, insularity. This development plan referred to in the biggest island of the Aegean Sea belonging to the administrative regions of Northern and Southern Aegean. The main methodology the integrated approach as a framework for organizing human activities, settlements and infrastructure in space. urban|regional|other|erasmus|self-initiated

Urban and Regional Development studio I group project

This business plan refers to the creation of the “LoKal Story� cafe - a restaurant to be sited on the beach of the city Kastoria. The company is offering culinary services and secondarily the sale of local products of high standards. The innovative feature of the company is the personal information of customers, both in layout and in the preparation phase of meals. Also helps to strengthen the local distribution networks locally initially with a view of national development. urban|regional|other|erasmus|self-initiated

Marketing Plan - city of Volos group project

The marketing plan of the city of Volos, was conducted in order to develop a multi-faceted character based on strong cultural traces. The alternative approach of the city and the urban landscape in order to promote a local economic, social and cultural development. Important elements are the participation of the university, the conduction and support of festivals and events as well as the use of existing infrastructure. The whole process is based on the use of modern social networking tools creating a direct enviroment of communication urban|regional|other|erasmus|self-initiated

Thesis Project

municipality of Patras - urban extends and population change

individual | academic | 10th Semester | 2012 supervisor: D. Stathakis dstath@prd.uth.gr

My diploma dissertation entitled “Urban Sprawl & Cellular Automata� examines the phenomenon of urban sprawl and the use of Cellular Automata as a method of its calculation. The phenomenon of urban sprawl refers to the spread of urban regions and to the change of land use from mainly rural to mainly urban due to the influence of the market in suburban areas. The extended Municipality of Patras is an interesting case for consideration as it contains the third largest city of Greece, Patras, involving thus an increasing pressure of urbanization to the outer non-urban areas.

Various calculation models of urban sprawl exist and each varies depending on the characteristics of the theoretical and technical level. Cellular Automata is a computational method able to simulate the evolutionary processes describing a complex system with a set of simple rules. The aim is to examine the SLEUTH model in terms of adaptability, of the "reaction" on the basis of different initial inputs and of the role it can play in the participation of spatial planning.

This video entitled “One Two Three” is a short film that was made as a project in the university of Complutense in Madrid at the class of Audiovisuals. It’s a story narrating the everyday life of the heroine - Maria - from a peculiar point of view, as its being revealed in the end. The story advances in an urban landscape and the different character of each place, is revealed by the use of illumination and sound in the scenes

photography My interest for photography began early on, and I think its a really important way of capturing and representing aspects of life. I always try to identify a pattern or a certain structure in my subjects which will lead me to the final shot My personal work flows between the micro and macro scale, as i find it interesting to capture the detailed texture of materials as well as the complex structure of buildings. Getting lost in urban landscapes fascinates me and gives me the opportunity to find perfect sites to capture with my camera urban|regional|other|erasmus|self-initiated

This video entitled “4Donuts & aCoffee� is a audiovisual composition documenting the a 3 day trip to a music festival in Thessaloniki. The whole idea was to create a free style video composition marking the actual trip and festival. I consider it an exercise on the process of film making, as i tried to apply different practises regarding the colour correction, the filters etc. as well as the editing and the effects.
