Workshop ALTERNATIVE DWELLING
31/07/2012

TEACHING
Elia Zenghelis, Professor, Berlage Institute
Teaching assistants: Savina Derdelakou, Nikos Platsas, Michalis Soſtas

WHEN / WHERE
Saturday 1 September through Sunday 9 September 2012
St. Nicholas – Paou Monastery, Argalasti, Pelion, Greece

THEME
Participants will examine alternative ways of integrating dwelling to landscape; these could include educational installations and accommodation. The concept of integration in the land- scape is projected neither with modest humility nor as an abandonment of architecture’s juris- diction 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.

WHO
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, 10 in total, will be selected on CV / portfolio basis.

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.
