An Architect named Aris Konstandinides studied how landscape, buildings and human beings can be connected. He was born in Greece and upon completion of his studies in architecture he traveled extensively in many different European Countries and gained experiences that would later define his future work and personality.
Aris Konstandinides highly influenced Greek Architecture, especially during the time span 1960 – 1990, by designing buildings which were strongly related to the given natural landscape.The years 1960s to 1990s have been characterized as Greek Modernism since drastic changes were made in the way that buildings were restructured. Aris Konstantinidestreated his constructions as “vessels of life” and based his entire designs upon this notion. In this way, he tried to give buildings, a meaning beyond there constructing entity, serving their cause as a space protected, safe and familiar. He designed buildings in order to follow the same sequence with the surrounding site and its natural characteristics and as a result to create a wholeand organic “body”, in full harmony with the landscape. He targets his creations to be a “space of life” where the body and the spirit, should receive relaxation and vitality. The work of Aris Konstantinides reveals the site as the background and the direction of the structure and design of the inside space of the building, which refers to a complete, along the years, architectural result.
