SUBJECT

 

Monastery in Strofades islands

During this Semester in our studio we will  design an Orthodox monastery on the Ionean islands of Strofathes.

The proposal of the new monastic unit will include places of worship, living, nutrition, hospitality, study, work and reception, gathering, coexistence and isolation of the resident, monk or the secular visitor and the pilgrim.

Cases of monastic structures will be examined concerning paradigms and typologies from the beginning of Christian monasticism until the contemporary era.

Our purpose is to set up a plan and formulate a design for a modern living environment for the monks within an enclosed residential environment and collective structure.

  

ASSESSMENT

EVALUATION
Students will work individually or in a team and will be assessed as a function of their participation in the course during the semester as well as their final work.
