Teaching assistants: Fyllio Katsavounidou, Nikos Platsas, Savina Derdelakou, Ioannis Baltogiannis
WHEN / WHERE
Friday 26 August through Sunday 4 September 2011
St. Nicholas – Paou Monastery, Argalasti, Pelion, Greece
Participants will examine alternative ways of temporary dwelling as well as its relation to the landscape; these could include educational installations which leave no permanent traces.
The concept of integration in the landscape is projected neither with modest humility nor as an abandonment of architecture’s jurisdiction but rather as an emphatic juxtaposition of the intrinsic properties and of the oppositions between the two. That is, of the dialectic that underpins and juxtaposes the constitution, on one hand, of the evolutionary dynamics of nature and, on the other, of the static balance of the human artifact.
The workshop is open to undergraduate students in the last years of their studies, to graduate students and to young architects (who have graduated in the last five years). Participants, 18 in total, will be selected on CV / portfolio basis.
STAY & COST
Τhe workshop will take place in the Monastery of Paou in Pelion, Greece (www.monipaou.gr), where participants will also be housed. Included in the participation price (300 euros) are: tuition fees, stay, as well as a daily excursion in the area.
