VOTANIKOS HOUSE Residential Refurbishment Athens Studio Syn refurbished a neo-classical residential building in central Athens. The brief asked for two units with shared courtyard and roof terrace. We worked on exposing the historic layered building fabric and complementing it with contemporary materials where needed. As many design decisions were solely dependent on exposing the historic fabric and could not be anticipated in advance, Studio Syn worked very closely with the client and contractors on site to devise suitable techniques.

Skylight window (fixed) above the dark corner in the master bedroom. Smaller in size than the stairwell landing skylight. Approx. dimensions .75m x 0.75m. This window is optional.

Main master bedroom window. This is effectively floor-to-ceiling french balcony door with even door leaves. It takes up maximum possible width between the party wall and the outrigger, removing the need for any cladding apart from window surrounds. This can be done in zinc, material TBC. Permitted Development asks for approx150mm setback (200mm along the roof line). The protruding balcony balustrade will align with the the wall surface on the floor below.

Balustrade at 1100mm above FFL, details and material to be decided in the next stage to fully take into account the details and materiality of the window surround.

Drain pipes will be rerouted where required as part of the detailed facade design considerations

1200 If any repair to the roof is required, it can be done using tiles removed from the place of the new star-gazing window.

The main window on the small room is centred on the facade. Smaller leaf, above the bathroom window, is openable and the larger is fixed. Balustrade at 1100mm above FFL

Front facade refurbishment presents an interesting design challenge due to the current cladding which conceals most of it at the moment. It will require several steps: 1. To be stripped of the existing facade tiles and cleaned of mortar as much as possible. 2. After this point, we can decide to go down one of the two routes: 3. Refurbish it using STO acrylic render or similar. Exact texture and colour to be confirmed once samples are received. 4. Alternatively, the facade is primed and painted. Colours tbc

The design intent is to use a slate or shingle roof cladding that will respond to the PD rule, but its product range will also provide an opportunity to explore creating an interesting colour scheme. Examples on SK-08

Permitted Development rules ask that the roof extension is set back 200mm along the slope of the existing roof. Practically it means a horizontal set back of approx. 150mm from the outer face of the existing wall.

Permitted Development rules ask for roof extensions to be clad in a material similar to the original roof. This is why most of neighbouring extensions use simple artificial slate roof cladding in red or dark red.

Το ντοκιμαντέρ ερευνά το θέμα της έννοιας και διαχείρισης του Δημόσιου χώρου σε μια τεταμένη και ιδιαίτερη περιοχή, καθώς κάτοικοι, καταστηματάρχες, ναρκομανείς, έμποροι, Δήμος, αστυνομία, αναρχικοί και αντιεξουσιαστες μάχονται για τη χρήση, την κατάληψη και τον ελέγχο του χώρου. Ποιοι είναι οι καλοί και ποιοι οι κακοί; Ποιοι οι παράνομοι, ποιοι οι τραμπούκοι και ποιος τελικά έχει δικαίωμα στον δημόσιο χώρο;

Avaton [Sanctuary] is a documentary based on PhD research material about the Athens district of Exarcheia collected from December 2008 to September 2010. The documentary investigates the meaning and management of public space in a tense and singular urban area where the inhabitants, the shop owners, the drug addicts and dealers, the Municipality, the police, the anarchists and the antiauthoritarians fight each other for the use, occupation and control of public space. Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? Who’s breaking the law, who are the bullies and, ultimately, who has a right to public space?

The multiple social definitions of public space

blog http://studiosynthetica.wordpress.com

Orsalia Dimitriou Goldsmiths University of London, Department of Visual Cultures

Idealised notions of public spaces, as uncontested spaces of democracy and culture, are frequently the leading visions of the official Greek State politics concerning issues such as the design of space and the political rights of the citizens. Such idealised notions are challenged in a number of public spaces in Athens where social claims over the space are manifested intensively. The claims vary from violent disputes and evictions to the creative formation of a new type of ‘commons’ serving as venues of political participation beyond those provided by the official political system.

Methodology and research questions Using primary sources such as video documentation and personal interviews and employing a body of theory on public spaces and the notion of public by Mitchell, Deutsche, Lefebvre and Foucault, the research challenges the assumption present in Greek urban policies and discourses that public space exists ‘naturally’ in the city and that it is created and offered by the State to its citizens. It is instead a malleable space that is constantly contested and necessarily ambiguous, combining aspects of its ideal manifestations and the problematic, conflicting ones, its inclusions and its exclusions.

The research investigates a number of contemporary actions, deriving from different social groups, that took place during the last two years in Exarheia area of Athens and influenced drastically both the constitution of the public sphere and the actual shape of the public space. The first key study, Exarhia square gains its notoriety as the core of urban warfare taking place annually between rioters and the police and is negatively characterised by mainstream media. At the same time it is the symbolic centre of alternative political groups, a leisure space for students and young people, a dealing point for drug addicts and the commercial centre of the neighbourhood. Claims for ‘publicness’ and rights to the square are the outcomes of multiple contestations that lead to precarious coalitions between the different groups (like the association of inhabitants aligning with the shop owners and the anarchists against the drug addicts) and occasional violent eruptions. The second key study, Parkaki is a squat of a parking lot that was turned into a park. Parkaki, a space that is practically illegal, is regulated by an open assembly that operates on a consensus base. As the squatters claim, the space is a result of the urban riots of December 2008 that fortified and united the individual voices of resistance to State politics. Parkaki is a platform of free-speech and expression for the majority of its users and at the same time a problematic and dysfunctional space for the authority.

The shelving system is completely modular and can be adapted to each student needs. Or used to define the form of the building. Developping different adaptations of the final joint to adapt to different surfaces and angles.

Each key hole is located on a structural pillar at different heights and distances which gives liberty to the builder.

The cross key hole can be orientated differently to have angled planes to keep movement and variety in the structure as well as to present books or magazines. Each joint can hang of the main stucture vertically with horizontal or angled planes attaching on top to make the structure modular. 28

DESIGNING THE COMMONS New Cross, London

This workshop, open to all CSM students, seek to investigate the role of designers in imagining the commons, setting common goals, resource sharing and participatory design. The project will take place at THE FIELD in New Cross – “an experiment in creating a new kind of local institution that utilizes arts and education tools and practices to create a hub for, and to be a catalyst of meetings, conversations, debate, ideas, learning and self-organised action for our area.” The space of THE FIELD, in operation since February 2014, has secured a 5 year rent-free lease and it is run by an organising committee of local residents. All core decisions are taken during assemblies with open participation in a horizontal basis. Project goal and outcome The participants would design and build a set of collaborative and communicative devices (furniture, cart, stall, objects, etc).The brief, design processes, methods and materials will be negotiated between the participants and the open community of THE FIELD. Time The workshop will take place once a week during four weeks. The participants should commit in attending at least three out of four workshops. The proposing starting date is the Saturday 25th of April. 25 April-a talk on the idea of the commons, a presentation from the participants of 7+( ),(/' DERXW WKH VSDFH WKH ¿UVW SDUW RI RUJDQL]LQJ DQG QHJRWLDWLQJ WKH GHVLJQ RXWFRPH EHWZHHQ ¿HOGHUV FRPPXQLW\ DQG participants and a welcoming food party. 2 May –design 15-16 May materials, construction methods and making Participation is free The project is funded by Restless Futures

HOW TO “SCRABBLE-A-MANUAL” Copenhagen

For the Copenhagen Interart Symposium on ‘How to do things with academia’ organized by the University of Copenhagen on 16-19 June 2011 , the organizers had an extraordinary call for manuals instead of papers! This is a manual which is also a game that Orsalia did in collaboration with illustrator Christina Christoforou and graphic designer Mary Ikoniadou Scrabble-a-manual involves around new ways of producing knowledge. Academia evolves and revolves around a textual word. Different knowledge, on nature, on art works, on human behaviour is described and analysed by a text. We wanted to test a production of meaning based on a visual language and at the same time challenge what knowledge is. Can knowledge for example derive from an invented mythical device and the ways to construct it? 6FUDEEOH D PDQXDO DOVR UHÀHFWV RQ WKH ZD\ DFDGHPLF WH[WV DUH constructed, they are not tabula rasa but are acceptable once based on notions already proved by other academics. Plus the academic ‘speech’ has to form a logic sequence, which might be a traditional logic or something completely new and inventive, but the logic behind the sequence should always be MXVWL¿HG Scrabble-a-manual is a collaborative action, both in its conception and in its realisation. The participants have to negotiate the ‘logic’ behind their manuals and can add or expand the manual of one of their fellow players. The typical manual is a way to instruct someone to produce/ assemble/montage/construct/do something that already exists. Furthermore the way it should be constructed/delivered/etc it is already known to the person who is writing the manual. Scrabble-a-manual on the contrary calls for open-ended manuDOV ZKHUH WKH ¿QDO RXWFRPH LV QRW NQRZQ EHIRUH DQG FDQ EH altered on the way. It is more dependable on the existing tools FDUGV SLFWRJUDPV WKDQ D ¿QDO FORVH HQGHG SURGXFW Scrabble-a-manual aims at producing fantastic/impressive/ impossible notions but the interest is mainly on the process (the manual, and the way the manual is constructed by playing). Scrabble-a-manual draws inspiration by the ways an academic text is produced (using notions of others, logic sequence, open end) but it calls for larger collaborations, creativity and most importantly, amusement. Won’t we all learn more by playing?

Activity description The activity proposed is to play a custom-made scrabble; instead of the word-building game, the participants would be involved in a manual-building game where the letters of the original game will be replaced by pictograms extracted from different manuals (these will vary from Ikea assembly manuals to instructive manuals on how to build a house, how to kill a rat, amongst others). The participants will be divided in teams (of approximately three people so they will not have to wait too long for their turn to play). All teams will be given the same amount of identical cards. In each team, the players will be allowed the same amount of cards- picked randomly from the bag; the players will take their turn to play one by one placing their cards on the provided board. The player’s aim is to get rid of their cards by constructing a sequence on the board or by attaching their card to another player’s sequence; the aim of the game is to produce a manual. The manuals produced will have to be named during the process of the game to the rest of the players. The participants can construct an absurd or incoherent manual sequence as long as they can provide an argument that explain it to their fellow players which in their turn can choose to accept the ‘logic’ of it, or not. So far, the rules of the game are very similar a game of scrabble. However, since we would like the participants to concentrate in creating inventive manuals we would not like to insert a point system in the game. Scrabble-a-manual is a call for different manuals that at the end of the game or at the end of the symposium can be used as scripts for movies, for performances, for PhD methodologies, for imaginary devices, for art objects. When there are no more cards to be placed on the board or when the players decide to end the game (whichever comes ¿UVW D SOD\HU IURP HDFK WHDP ZLOO SUHVHQW WKH OLVW RI WKH PDQXals to the rest of the teams and he /she will write a set of instructions as a result from the experience of playing or inspired by one of the manuals on the board. At the end we will have a long list of different manuals and a smaller list of sets of instructions to accompany some of the visual cards/pictograms.

Studio brief 2013/14: Context, Concept, Content Think, for example, on the evolution of: - Lifestyles (i.e. relation between live and work); its impact on the familiar, social and economic structures and how these are developed in space and time; - the current world order and how it may shift; i.e. how would this affect the balance between global and local? How the current cultural, social, economic and political hegemonies would change? - London as global metropolis and its effects; will current processes accelerate or shift? - sustainability and how it would be integrated, in terms of environment but also in terms of socioeconomical development; - the price of land; the technologies and economies related to construction; the affordability of space. - a long list of etc... These scenarios need to be devised from a research and not just from your intuition. You need to consider few aspects to focus on and to consequently produce a design response, rather than considering many.

The general agenda of the design projects of stage 3 is related to the investigation of different ways of articulating the complexity of this context and its situations, focussing on the area around and within Bemerton Estate, at Barnsbury, Islington. The shared initial research question is how to actively connect the Bemerton Estate with its surrounding areas through material, spatial and programmatic agencies and agents. The vicinity of the area of study should provide with the possibility of having a direct experience of the context and the different situations it contains, informing your approaches and proposals.

The purpose of this studio is to imagine the future of the comPRQV LQ KLJKO\ GHQVH XUEDQ SORWV GH¿QHG E\ VWURQJ ERXQGDULHV (the street, the high-rise, the market, the public space, the train OLQH DLPLQJ WR FRQQHFW HPSRZHU DQG HYHQWXDOO\ ¿JKW EDFN Remember that innovation can only come when imagining different social relations and realities. The emphasis of this studio is on materiality and social relations. Being critical towards standard architectural approach, which focuses on the material and geometrical construction, this studio is going to approach design as a creative and critical tool that aims to connect the material with social practices imagining a future of social relationships, build on communication, connection and common goals that can empower local communities and resist their erosion and expulsion.

Any architectural design project requires engaging with a strategic understanding of the social and physical context into which it will be implemented, developed through a comprehensive process of analysis and experimentation. Our society is in a constant process of evolution that may be more or less noticeable. If architecture can be considered as a sort of intersection of space, in its materiality, and time, through our dwelling, then the conception and production of an architectural proposal requires an understanding of the context and the situations and processes around and within it. Stage 3 is focussed on the development of a strategic approach to design, a critical exploration and experimentation of the potential agency that architecture may have. We emphasise the role of the design process as a form of critical practice, in itself; supported by a comprehensive research and analysis.

This studio asks you to envisage spaces, tactics and new types of living related to radical creative practices. You are invited to ORRN DW WKH VSHFL¿FLWLHV RI ORFDO DQG LQWHUQDWLRQDO DUWLVWLF JURXSV that challenge social conventions. We will question the production of culture, the boundaries between producing art and living inside art, the future of dwelling, live-work units, creative live-in spaces, art residencies and cultural institutions. You are to design spaces that will enable artists to live, work, perform, share resources, ideas, form collectives, engage with the community and the context, engage with audiences, experiment, challenge the cultural and residential status quo and form resilience. Your proposal should be a hybrid of residential and cultural spaces. You are strongly encouraged to look at art practices of social character, engagement and communities of artists. Identify practices that question or require different forms of living and inhabitation than the standard market solutions. Remember that innovation can only come when imagining different social relations and realities.

Exercising socio-political critique via cultural critique

This year’s studio asks you to interrogate existing architectural market-prescribed spatial typologies and models of cultural production and to envisage new spatial tactics, arrangements and typologies that will house experimental, radical and sociallyempowering art practices.

This year our studio has worked together with an MA studio at the School of Architecture in Dessau led by Professor Ivan Kucina. Our collaboration is based on sharing interests in commons, arts, collaborative developments, alternative futures and radical actions. Referring to the 100 year of Bauhaus, its collaborative design process and its vision of design that can make social change, we asked the students to imagine an alternative world in which empathy motivates our personality instead of individual success, solidarity runs our society instead of market competitiveness, and collaboration transforms our cities instead RI SUR¿W PDNLQJ

We will question the spatial and social boundaries between the productions, circulation and consumption of art; we will seek similarities between producing art and living inside art, and interrogate the future of cultural institutions; we will enquire about the role of art as a catalyst for social and political betterment and we will experiment with new situations, scenarios, programmes, forms and spatial typologies that are produced by and for radical art and cultural practices. Your proposal should be a cultural space that will include a variety of private, public and common areas. You are strongly encouraged to select as your users/protagonists art practices of social character, engagement and communities of artists. You should identify practices that offer alternative forms of operation and question the typical art market solutions - look for multisensory, collaborative, participatory and transitory practices. You are encouraged to think about cultural spaces in broad terms: do learn from spaces of institutions that are typically associated with culture like opera houses, concert halls, theatres, art galleries and museums, but also consider the less obvious, ephemeral and everyday cultures and their spatial manifestations such as cooking classes, circuses, clubs, social clubs, libraries, open schools, hybrid art and business platforms, writers’ clubs, street theatre. You are also invited to think of a wide range of visual, performative and sound art.

Throughout the year, we have kept a close contact with our partner studio in Dessau. We shared resource and knowledge through online groups, joined each other’s reviews and organised a study trip to Dessau. The body of work produced will contribute towards a shared resource base.

The Unit will situate itself in the dense and exciting cultural grounds of Athens, Greece - a city with a rich background and history, currently suffering an economic crisis that has impacted the socio-political and urban fabric. This crisis-ridden metropolis FRQVWLWXWHV DQ H[WUHPHO\ G\QDPLF FXOWXUDO ¿HOG LW LV WKH FUDGOH of numerous alternative bottom-up cultural practices, but is also is chosen by large international institutions such as Documenta and the Dutch Art Institute and Onassio Foundation as their venue. While these large institutions claim to have chosen Athens because it embodies the economic, political, social, and cultural dilemmas that Europe faces more broadly, the critics point out the issues revolving around ‘cultural exploitation of crisis’, ‘exoticism’ and ‘colonisation’.

There is an urgent necessity for a profound reformulation of the existing design approaches for the reactivation of this cityscape which will prioritise the common values of social inclusion, cultural diversity and the well-being of the citizens over any other particular economic interest. The Unit will look for solutions that will go beyond a building in the narrow sense of the term as it will be open up to a range of spatial arrangements varying from ephemeral to monumental and including visual, performative or aural expressions of architecture.

This is the second installation in this street, which was translated from a long shot. The troupe left the original city and arrived at the new performance destination. When the train entered the station, the players got off the train and walked out of the platform. Then, a panning camera, the picture gradually turned from the station head to the beach on the right side, and a group of parade team marches through the frame.

When I selected an abandoned building as site, it is inevitable to premeditate its original foundation. Thoroughly removing old buildings is a reckless decision. Take the current situation of this community into consideration, there has been no new construction for a long time, and any new installation will be abrupt on the street. So I need to hide the installation into the old building. Instead of completely be covered up, it was merged with some old walls or old structural columns. By this way, the installation look like derivatives of historical relics, keeping in harmony with the surroundings, revitalizing the ruined house. The new and old parts have the following design methods: connection, juxtaposition, and overlay, which confers on it a sense of place and identity through their historic continuity and cultural associations.
