Design Studio Required Elective at semester(s) 6, 8, ECTS: 12
Collaborators: Nikolaos Platsas, Constantinos Zves, Irgen Saliani
The studio aims in programming and designing a built installation of 200X200X20 m, as an alternative structure for the urban block. Analyzing a new metropolitan anthropography of the “multitude” and the “singularity”, the project is constructing urban typologies of semi-autonomous communities combining labour and living, the urban and the rural, the civic and the provincial. “FaBel” is a hybrid trans-urban type that combines the vertical accumulation of programs and languages of the tower (Babel) with the horizontal communal density of the Favellas. The methodological approach is based on the acts of multiplication-repetition-differentiation, to form algorithms of building production. The starting point in the process of multiplication is the design of a living unit 2X2X2 m.
