On Thursday 1 February 2018 at 8.30 pm the opening of City of Rooms exhibition will take place on the 2nd floor of the "Giorgio de Chirico" Art Center. The exhibition is organized by the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly in collaboration with the Cultural Directorate of the Municipality of Volos.
The exhibition presents the research results of the homonymous course in Architectural Design, in the Graduate Cycle of Studies, of the Department of Architecture - University of Thessaly. In the designs, drawings and texts exhibited, hypothetical proposals are made for the activation of the redundant building stock of the city of Volos.
The large number of incomplete buildings in the center of the city and in the whole of Volos - Nea Ionia city complex reflects the difficulty in the production of space and the decrease in the demand for dwelling during the last period. The experimental nature of the lab allows a positive reading of this ominous treaty. The redundant building stock is considered as a raw material for the redesign of the urban landscape.
The exhibition is designed and curated by the teaching team Aristides Antonas/ Professor, Sophia Vyzoviti /Associate Professor, Giorgos Mitroulias/ Assistant Professor, Lois Papadopoulos/ Emeritus Professor, Nikos Platsas/ PhD Candidate, Chara Stergiou/ Post graduate student, in collaboration with the students of the course.
