Τhe field of action is Gerani, Attica. The guide to the preparation of this thesis are the conclusions collectively drew during our research paper entitled "the sense of density, A CALENDAR OF RECORDING EXPERIENCE AND OBSERVATIONS IN THE CENTER OF ATHENS".
We focused on four elements - performances which appeared and performed in the city:
1.The panopticon view from the hills
2. "the fall" of the body in city tissue, "fall of Icarus"
3. the thickenings and the dilutions,.as well as
4. the hidden hyper thickenings.
Originally we study four hills of Athens: Lycabettus Hill, Strefi, Tourkovounia, Acropolis (associatively Santorini). We tried to analyze the "uploads and the immersions, habitation, movements, hill excavation and the placement of buildings in order to isolate typologies, uses and functions, escalations and flushes of the phenomenon.
We tried to apply the conclusions of this analysis to the typical building of athens, polykatoikia, considering it as one more hill. Subsequently, we focusing now on the block between the streets Anaxagoras - Menander - Sophocles - Geraniou. We performed a lifting attempt on the buildings in order to "tease" the regulation on maximum permissible height of the the Building Code. In order to do that, we used digital applications and empirical "patchwork". We have reached a new height regulation applicable throughout the Gerani area.
Next stage of "cut and sew" was applyed on the new model of city and by extension on buildings. We were based on the findings of the first analysis on the hills and, therefore, their application on 5 buildings of the block adjacent to each other through the uncovered inner area of the block. New additions floors, deduction of the volume from lower floors, internal and external application of new movements (stairs and elevators), opening the uncovered inner area of the block, stepping the back facades. All the above referring, one by one, in a different hill in Athens tissue. A utopian realism directly applicable in Athens presents new opportunities for new sites with new standards of data, qualities but mainly new experiences for the residents of the city.
