The educational intention of this design workshop is focused on the inter-disciplinary areas of human habits, information technologies, rural and urban landscape identities, industry oriented construction methodologies and zero energy consumption/energy harvesting. Students have to investigate, examine and discover the multiple variations of major political, aesthetic and technological topics regarding the western societies typologies of life and behavior in order to criticaly manipulate and, finally, embody the theoretical and functional possibilities of all algorithmic orientations to a unique construction-form aiming to achive a multi-purpose life-sustainable unit. This unit should, additionally, be capable to be build in a shipyard or aeroplane consruction factory thus it should be designed in separate mono-form pieces that can be assembled. The program depend on a crucial and mind provocing synergie of knowledge units demanding multiple information translations and re-orientations of the core-meaning concept values thus emerging and re-directing the methodology of thinking and operating in the industrial design and production field.
