WHITE HAVEN

RESORT

PHILLIPINES

/ April 2018

In the early 1970s, Henri Lefebvre put forward the radical hypothesis of the complete urbanization of society which required, in his view, a radical shift from the analysis of urban form to the investigation of urbanization processes. Building upon Lefebvre's modus operandi we approach the site not as an unbuild, natural environment but rather as an urban landscape.

GREEKVILLE: FRAGMENTS OF MEMORY

/ April 2019

The exhibition touches upon issues of migration, self-identity and the ‘architecture of belonging’. It is an architectural and anthropological reading of three American Greektowns; Detroit, Chicago and Tarpon Springs. These three cases provide a unique platform for cultural observations and architectural speculations. We treat them as a medium for criticism and manifestation of the innovative, hybrid and sometimes bizarre concepts of ‘Greekness’ within the north American urban context. In so doing, we aim to provoke a discussion on issues of migration and identity by contemplating on the fusion between modern Greek and American culture.

The following master plan and research aims to establish a strategic plan for the greater area of Lake Trichonida, in the Aetoloakarnania region. Lake Trichonida is the largest natural lake in Greece, covering an area of 98.6 square kilometers (38.1 sq mi). The lake and its environs are richly bio-diverse, and contain numerous sites of cultural significance. The region surrounding Lake Trichonida has a predominantly agricultural character, defined by numerous villages and small towns.

ZOUCHOURI SQUARE

/ June 2018

The ‘Zouhouri’ square is practically the courtyard of an important old mosque in city of Larnaca in Cyprus. After the war of 1974, the Muslim community moved to the North part of the island and the place was abandoned and left to decay.

KOUM-KAPI

BAY

/June 2013

The “Koum-Kapi” (meaning“Gate of Sand”) is the only Venetian gate of the walled city of Chania that remains intact. It took its name from the sandy beach that lies next to the gate. Once deserted and desolate, Koum Kapi is currently one of the most vibrant places of the city. Numerous cafes, scattered all along the coastal area, pedestrians, bicyclists, swimmers and heavy traffic congestion resembles the daily routine of this district. In 2013, the municipality of Chania held an architectural completion, asking for the redesign and redevelopment of the area.

GERMANINA FARM

/ June 2011

The present architectural competition, besides the architectural synthesis for the regeneration and redevelopment of the “Germanina Farm” calls also for a proposal of the new uses of the farm.

COOP

BANK

/June 2012

The new headquarters building attempts to interpret the history of the bank into terms of architectural language. The core concept of this project consists on the main ideals of the cooperative movement and the deep roots of the organisation in the strong agricultural tradition of the island. This strong agricultural character of Cyprus that was predominant in the island until very recently along with the cooperative ideals gave flesh and bones to the Cooperative Bank of Cyprus. This very same character was set as the foundation tone of these new headquarters.
