Εργαστήριο: Ριζοσπαστική Επιθεώρηση - Τι Απέγιναν τα Αρχιτεκτονικά Περιοδικά; (03-07/01/2017)
Η σημερινή συνθήκη απαιτεί τη ριζική αναθεώρηση του ρόλου, των μέσων και των αξιών της αρχιτεκτονικής. Ιστορικά, η πρωτοπορία έχει εκφραστεί μέσα από «μικρά» και «μεγάλα» περιοδικά με ανάλογη περιορισμένη ή και διεθνή διανομή· αυτό δε φαίνεται να συμβαίνει σήμερα. Τα μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης και το διαδίκτυο συνολικά κυριαρχούνται από τη μαζικοδημοκρατική λογική του 'κλικαρίσματος' και του 'like'. The survival of the viralest. Τα ίδια τα σύμβολα της αλλοτινής πρωτοπορίας αναλώνονται σε μια αδιάκοπη διαδοχή σοκαριστικών εικόνων που δε σοκάρουν πλέον κανέναν.

A Summer House in the Thriving Brazilian Nature by SPBR Arquitetos
Two main goals have led the design process: [1] not touch the ground; [2] to create an outside platform where topography, with 50% of slope, has provided any flat piece of land. This weekend house itself was arranged in one main square prism: 10m by 10m and 6m high. This volume was placed properly detached from the street, where the ground level was deep enough to accommodate two enclosed floors and an open space underneath.

Mykonos White Boxes Resort / Potiropoulos+Partners
The architectural approach of “Mykonos White Boxes Resort” is not tempted by the idea of imitation. From the very beginning it aimed at challenging the notion of “dialectical contemporary”, bypassing the “traditional” and “ephemeral”. In order for the ambient atmosphere of the place – and its underlying nature, the one that a person receives behind and beyond the visible or the obvious – to be reflected on the synthesis in a contemporary manner, a terminology was adopted, that was borrowed from a neo-modern manierism, filled with multiple experiential implications that deal with the concept of the “building-event”. This approach contrasts the truly pictorial revival of the traditional “building-exemplar”.
 
The complex is developed amphitheatrically, with multiple levels in succession, resembling terraced fields on a hillside. Built in equal courses with intermediate voids, the modules of the rooms and suites create linear arrays reminiscent of drystone walls on a bigger scale. The parts extracted from the main volume of the structure that the rooms are developed – in such a way that ensures that the primitive volume remains comprehensible – are filled with natural light, a key element of the composition. The suggested synthesis constitutes a spatial narrative of the attributes of this particular place. The dialogue between the proposal and the natural landscape of the area, as well as with the living memory of the tradition, outline the main design principles.
