An important man and tutor of our Department passed away yesterday. George Marnelakis was the main and most daring intellectual of his generation on the scrutiny of the relationship across sexuality and space, gender studies and the city. The community of our Department was lucky enough to be part of his academic activity. He has shared his thoughts and ideas with us. His presence, in the architectural milieu of Greece, provided the confidence and the prospect of a renewed examination of the social role of Architecture. His activity on acknowledging the political importance of everyday life affairs and relationships, was aiming at the advance of architects’ intervening stance based on freedom and inclusiveness. His absence is a great loss for both the academic and the architectural community of Greece.   


Giorgos Marnelakis was born in Athens. He studied Architecture at the National Technical University of Athens (1993-2000) and Urban and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths College of the University of London (2001-2002). He taught Gender Studies and Cultural Geography at the School of Architecture of NTUA and the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly (2004-2010). Since 2005 he has been teaching in collaboration with Dina Vaiou the postgraduate course A Gender Cultural Approach of Urban Space at the Interdepartmental Postgraduate program of studies Architecture-Spatial Design of NTUA at the direction of Urban and Regional Planning. His research focused on issues of sexuality, gender and cultural identity within urban space. In his PhD research under the title, Pleasure and the formation of the city as a subject of discourse, he studied the idea of pleasure within the discourse of Modernity in regard to the city. He was the editor of the annual scientific journal Research in Architecture of the direction Architectural Design-Space- Culture ofthe Interdepartmental Postgraduate Program of NTUA Architecture- Spatial Design. His books, Geographies of the Bodies: Sexuality, Gender and Urban Space and Women and Men within everyday spaces (in collaboration with Dina Vaiou) are expected to be released by Alexandria and Epikentro editions respectively.

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

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.

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 (, 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.

Please send your application (include a 2-page pdf with 150-words cv and sample of portfolio) to (deadline: 31 July, 2012). 



BERLIN / Universität der Künste > 23 - 30 july
CHANIA / Center of Mediterranean Architecture > 22 - 30 august

The KAM workshop of Berlin would elaborate on the subject of communities that already shared massively the “panopticon cultures” as continuous conditions of social normality. Systems of freedom are examined as analogous to the Plan de evasión, the novel by Adolfo Bioy Casares describing a system of detention in illusion: in an analogous way, the first thematic area of 2012 KAM workshops will be linked to the constitution of a mapped world as a first system of detention. The draft design of a video game is the final product of the Berlin’s workshop.

Concerning the KAM workshop of Chania its participants will be asked to design a minimum isolated capsule that forms a maximum isolation possibility including the description of an illusion of community, through an extended time of autonomy concerning food and water. This isolated relation to the community functions as the formation of an autonomous system that in the same time creates a separation from the community. The investigation of the autonomous cell that is formed as the place for the natural body placed in a map. The participants will conclude to a model of a condensed “room condition” and some linear drawings describing its technical characteristics.

KAM workshops are open to graduate and post-graduate students of architecturε. They can also be followed by students of art, design, media and cultural studies.
