About the lecture:
Emphasizing the physiognomy of Thessaloniki's waterfront , the largest and most vital public space in the city, the association "Friends of Nea Paralia" organizes participatory actions and cultural actions, raising citizens' awareness of the use and respect of the public space, creating a platform for cultivation, implementation and dissemination of ideas about the "inhabitation" of the public space. The association, following the 60 actions it has organized, will also organize this year's performance "Nea Paralia – Nea Pasarela", a catwalk performance with the participation of students of fine arts schools, architecture, as well as professionals from the fashion world and individual creators were garments are made exclusively with recyclable materials.
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.

Objects: A visual narrative
Series of studies on the collections of the Benaki Museum
Since its foundation, The Benaki Museum Shop has acted as a platform for promoting new designers, who research the Museum’s collections, get inspired and subsequently propose and design new objects establishing thus a dialogue between the exhibits and
contemporary life. As part of this dialogue and aiming to support new ideas, the BNM is launching “Object: A visual Narrative” a new series of small exhibitions of upcoming designers.
An Object in Transition
Projects from the University of Thessaly Students
13 postgraduate students from the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly answer a series of questions on the way objects age and the reasons which make them collectible, unique or ordinary. Initially selecting an object from the Museum’s collections, they create a narrative about its use in the past, its place in the present and its imaginary use in the future.
“Mediation Exercises: Interior Spaces” is a series of sound and space installations by students of the Post-Industrial Design, Postgraduate Program, realized in collaboration with visual artist, Nikos Arvanitis, which explore sound and oral narration as a design medium.
Through observatory analysis and narrative synthesis they aim to expand the experience of inhabiting an interior into sound and spatial installation.
Four different sound narratives share a common spatial installation typology and take place one after another.
