The project is about the development of a building system named ‘Meta-System’. The degree thesis is about designing a system of which all parts can be shaped and customized from any user. The intention is to produce a system of individual creation and design, where the user acts under his own stereotypes without any architectural knowledge.
The project can be separated in four sections. The first section consists of the system method, specifications, information and all its parts. The application of the system in emergency circumstances is examined in another section which deals with the design of an emergency type house, where the criteria of the project will be: the size, the ease of construction and reassemble with minimum waste and the flexibility of the design.
The use of the system in a smaller scale, such as multi-use furniture is examined in the form of an experiment. Ten different people are asked to design their own construction, using the system, based to their own needs. The system will have the form of a product, consisted of 40 pieces – which occupy 1³ meter in a folder. The results could confirm the success of the system, for an individual design without any architectural effect.
The last section of the project is about the use of the system in housing prefabrication, involving the design of two standard houses, of one or two bedrooms each.
