Curative Parasite/

Thesis MArch Project, Bartlett, UCL(Commendations) Given the current situation in Fener, with its complex social network, the historical timber building stock and the strong opposition of the inhabitants to the upcoming gentrification plans, we propose an alternative of how the city can sustain itself through a progression of events and processing activities. We experiment with the reuse of left-over space and material through the setting up of an enabling infrastructure that is slowly taken over by local inhabitants and turned into self-managed spaces; those spaces will gradually become productive, following a participative process with minimum cost. Elements that are considered as trash or debris can make up the raw material for the inhabitants to reconstruct their own identical space. Adopting a DIY attitude, curating the built environment and involving the people, will gradually result in adding a new layer of interventions to the area in the form of a temporal parasitic condition, which will find its own way to evolve through time. This project is about decisions and empowerment. It is an attempt to explore alternative ways of handling urban design by redefining the role of the designer and making him a tool to prepare the ground for a grassroots revival of a neighborhood that is currently at the edge of gentrification.

Diploma Project AUTH

This project revolves around the old rail station in the village Milies, which is located in Mount Pelion of Greece and aims to connect this region with the settlement above. The train trip and the region, the mount of mythic creatures Kentaurwn, as a terrain, as nature, as a myth were the two main aspects that attracted us towards this approach. We are exploring what takes place between the routes and the stasis, that is in their in between, and trying to discover the relations who associate them. In order to find our tools for the design process, we used an approach which began with an impulsive tracing of the train route in text, a design and a model. Then we tried to describe it in structural terms, so that we could decode our own early synthesis .

Textile Workshop

This workshops’ aim was to built a 1:1 model initiated by the world of fashion, that can be either worn on human body or can stand on its own in the environment as a structure. Inspired by Christas’ de Carouge work in fashion design we constructed a model using wire and white fabric.

Slaughter House, Thessaloniki, Greece

This work is a restoration of a slaughter house which is an eclecticistic building. The building is turned into a cinema center with a small fairground and it is placed among a nexus of cultural spaces that are located in the area of the slaughter houses. The main idea is the use, in different variations of the one and only primitive structure: the cube. And that is because only a morphology as simple as a cube can be successfully combined with a complicated eclicticistic face.

Floating Life Box/

Architecture in Special Conditions This unit aims to provide immediate medical help and accommodation in affected by Tsunami regions. It fills the specifications of a small surgery unit. Vaccinations and small surgeries can be operated in it. Medicines, oxygen, supplements of diet, water and food supplies can be stored in it. A second typology provides accommodation to doctors and victims of the Tsunami. The unit is capable of housing up to 3 individuals. It consists of a one piece plastic shell and is able to float in shallow depths.

Traditional Residence/

Pelion, Thessaly, Greece_under construction This is a traditional house in the Eastern part of Pelion. Appart from the specific architectural characteristics of the built environment of the region, the spectacular view was another really importnat factor. Allowing the maximum possible view to the residents was a priority for the design. As a result the long front facade of the house breaks into an obtuse angle and opens up ΠΈτσι η πρόσοψη του κτιρίου σπάει σε in the form of a fan towards the Aegean Sea. The construction materials, mainly stone and wood, apply to the traditional architecture of the area. Roof Sketch Morphological Choice of the house/
