Analysis, Synthesis

In the current digital architecture research agenda, surface is investigated as a responsive, adaptive, interactive, and flexible entity. This new kind of surface calibration that accentuates its responsiveness focuses upon a microscopic rearticulating of its texture. Surface texturing towards kinetic behavior and interactivity has revamped the relation between architecture and the ancient craft of textiles. Folding becomes again relevant in the frame of transformable surface tessellations that often reuse and remix standard origami patterns.

The  courseexplores architecture as a garment as it can be identified today through lightweight and ephemeral structures that combine digital fabrication with the materiality of an ecological consciousness and the practices of a cyclical economy.


In the current semester, the course will contribute with the production of a series of clothes to the “Nea Paralia –Nea Pasarela” event, organized by the association Filoi tis Neas Paralias for the fourth consecutive year in the New Waterfront of Thessaloniki. #filoineasparalias
