CULTURAL CENTER & SHORT-TERM RESIDENCES URBAN INTERACTIONS THROUGH IN-BETWEEN SPACES

DIPLOMA DESIGN THESIS, 2011 5th year student project, University of Patras Supervisor: Prof. Athanasios Spanomaridis Published in the Journal of the Department of Architecture, Îą2610, University of Patras, GR, issue 06

The proposal aims to create a multifunctional environment that will promote the cultural character of the site. The plot is part of the wider historical and cultural center of the capital of Greece, Athens and it is surrounded by archaeological sites, parks and cultural buildings. The existing cultural buildings on site are accessible only via street levels while having no connection between them, thus creating a huge void in between. In that respect, the current situation of the area is mainly characterized by inertia and introversion. The introduction of new cultural and residential programs into the obsolete space of the site intends to activate its urban dynamic which in combination with the present built fabric will constitute a spatial system of intense vitality. The enclosed program is comprised of three distinctive art institutions at the

ground floor level and a short-term residence block on top. In contrast to the previous introverted nature of the site, the design provides benefits of both separateness and integration. A pattern of paths is connecting the different art institutions with each other as well as with the neighboring parks. Moreover, a large outdoor plaza organized in the center of the site serves as a stasis point where visitors and residents are able to participate in outdoor social activities. Finally, the rest of the intermediate space between the built environment is transformed into a large open public park. The sections are interwoven and sometimes emerging from the underground. They reveal a continuous space of interactions through wich cultural facilities, residences and open spaces configure a system in constant movement.

DIFFUSED ATHENS HOUSING COMPLEX AND MIXED-USE BUILDING, INTROVERSION V EXTROVERSION

TOPICS OF DESIGN 2, 2009 4th year student project, University of Patras Supervisor: Prof. Yannis Aesopos Published in the Journal of the Department of Architecture, Îą2610, University of Patras, GR, issue 05

Athens’s future expansion is directed towards the Mesogeia suburbs. The local population in Mesogeia has doubled over the past few years and it is estimated to overcome the amount of 400.000 residents in the near future. Furthermore, due to Attica Highway Mesogeia are closer than ever to the center of Athens. The area defined by Spata, Koropi, Paiania and El. Venizelos Airport is rather critical concerning the future urban development. Instead of designing a master plan for the whole area, it was preferred to intervene only at a small part of it. By placing a complex of social housing with cultural and commercial facilities at the center of this region then the remaining unbuilt environment will be affected, thus becoming a space of absence that will eventually set off a process of transformation into new animated urban conditions. The synthesis consists of a green public space which is surrounded by housing units that eventually protect this open space from a future expansion of the nearby areas. A mixed-use building is positioned in the center of the green space, while a subway extension along with four new highways bring life to this esoteric living environment. Greece Spata Paiania

NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM UNCOTROLLED INTERFUSION OF A FLUID STRUCTURE

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN 6, 2008 3rd year student project Supervisor: Prof. Andreas Angelidakis Published in the Journal of the Department of Architecture, α2610, University of Patras, GR, issue 04.

The site is located adjacent to Patras University Campus in Greece. The Charadros river that flows in a rocky ground constitutes the natural boundary between them. The stream is dry during the summer months except when it rains in the mountains. The design of the Natural History Museum aims to unite Patra’s community with the University. In order to create big open spaces that could host public events relative to the museum’s content, the building is placed above the stream as it is considered a leftover space. Therefore, on the southern side of the river an outdoor exhibition surface welcomes the visitors, whereas on the northern side the building literally expands over the road and penetrates into the campus. In this way, the building functions as an intermediate space between two public strata. The morphology of the Natural History Museum is conceived from the curvilinear traces of water on the earthen ground. Curved sloping walls form fluid spaces that are unprecedented and imaginable. Moreover, four massive concrete cores are based on the lower ground of the river while the exhibition spaces rest above them and create a “topography gallery”. In this way, the visitor can experience the naturalness of the eroded ground.

FACADE FLEXIBILITY

The L-shaped plot is delimited by a medium traffic road to the West and by a pedestrian road to the East, ten meters higher than the former. The proposal aims to ensure unobstructed panoramic views to the apartments and at the same time to integrate the pedestrian road with the street level by creating a passage for the residents of the wider area. The volume of the building is elevated five meters from the street level, allowing the urban fabric to unfold inside the empty space of the plot and transform it into an outdoor space. In addition, an outdoor staircase connects the level of the square with the pedestrian road as well as with the first floor of the building which contains public functions such as an indoor swimming pool and a gym. An exhibition space is placed in the basement, the entrance of which is located in the Northwest shed space, while its exit is located at the center of the square.

SPECIAL TOPICS IN INFOMATICS, 2009 4th year student project Supervisor: Prof. Vasilis Stroubakos

The study focuses on investigating and transferring principles that are found in natural and artificial organisms into the field of architectural design. More specifically, the study examines the unit of a triangle in search of new forms and structures that derive from the gathering, interrelation and interaction of multitudinous arrays of units and subsustems. Through physical models as an experimental design medium we were able to test different organisations of the same unit.

AUDIOVISUAL ART

The project captures a living experience in the city. The protagonist is the city itself, the myriad of urban elements which ebb and flow without any apparent underlying logic. Considering the notion of the city as a process-driven landscape constantly in flux, the citizen eventually faces the confusion of space. Thus, human emotions tend to absorb urban unexpecred conditions. This particular story follows a citizen who is trying to rich the highest point of the city in order to orientate himself.

INTERPRETATIONS During the course we were given art works from Suprematism movement in order to understand the basic geometric forms. Our task was to analyze the context of the painting and create a three dimensional physical model out of it. Studying Kazimir Malevich painting proved quite challenging. It could be either a plan, elevation, section or a combination of the aforementioned. In that respect, the study focuses on experimenting the multiple visual aspects of the painting through physical modeling as a medium of thought, instead of being a tool for representation.

GRACE ST. MORITZ HOTEL FRAGMENTS OF LAND

This concept proposal calls for a redesign of an existing hotel in the Alps and the addition of another floor. Far from giving in to Belle Époque nostalgia, the proposal reinvents the local vernacular by playfully elaborating on the building’s particular history and natural setting. The upper part of the building, comprising the hotel rooms, is redesigned to resemble a glacier perched above the stone base of the building, which remains largely the same. On the exterior, a white, crumpled surface wraps over the roof and fades downwards, as if it were melting over the old stone walls. Angular configurations around the windows frame the spectacular vistas and contain private balconies. The same geometry is repeated more discreetly on the rear of the building and the sloping roof.

KINSTERNA HOTEL REFERENCIAL SURFACE

The hotel is camouflaged among olive and orange groves near the medieval fortress of Monemvasia in Greece. It consists of an extension of an existing hotel to house the common areas. Due to the steep landscape the building is developed into three levels. Thus, while approaching the building from the road the first impression is the roof which consists the foreground of the mesogeian landscape that lies behind it. In that respect, a concertina-like roof structure is proposed to echoe the landscape geometry while referring to the traditional pitched roofs of other buildings in the area. The angular geometry of the folded timber-structure roof creates a zigzag feeling of back and forth. From outside the building is acknowledged as a sculptural object, while on the inside it creates a dramatic feeling.

ONASSIS CULTURAL CENTER LOBBY SPACE WITHIN A SPACE, A CHOREOGRAPHY OF ANGULAR GEOMETRIES

The project calls for the redesign of the entrance and lobby spaces of the Onassis Cultural Center, a new cultural hub in Athens designed by Architecture Studio. A series of bespoke installations wrap around the building’s existing structural elements and spark a dynamic relationship between the three key characteristics: the physical space, the digital experience and a series of specially curated wraparound events. One is dedicated to showcasing portfolios of young creatives, another becomes a pop-up store, while a third takes the more humble role of providing a meeting corner. The aim is to create a vibrant all day hub that will appeal to the Onassis Cultural Center’s ever increasing dynamic and diverse crowd. The design of these new installations is inspired by the distinct language of the existing facade. The white marble louvres on the exterior are kinked to form the structures that wrap around the lobby’s existing elements and they are carefully choreographed.
