+ alteration of the traditional skepticism towards delinquents

01

Here, the main purpose of architecture is the accommodation & rehabilitation. Making a step further, its mental task is the reinforcement of one’s body & soul and integrated experience of the world, attempting to reconstruct a normal state of being. Life enhancing architecture has to address and provoke all of the senses simultaneously and fuse the image of one’s self with his experience of the world. Thus, environmental psychology and philosophy of perception offer the base for creating a healing space which will stimulate senses and offer physical challenges.

A PUBLIC VOID RE-INTRODUCTION OF CANAL

01

The lines of the liberated ground floor lead to the Dome. Its interior hosts public functions and its mass encloses a new public void. A promenade beginning from the grand canal of Haarlem, passes over the river and connects the old center with this new focal point of the city. The ground level of the dome has been opened and 2 vertical circulation cores have been added for transition to the upper levels. The 2nd aim of the urban design is the re-introduction of the canal in the position where it used to be.

PHASE

3&4

The 3rd phase occupies the top level around the Dome. It consists of a sequence of spaces very friendly and residential in character. The last infiltration point – exodus is on the corner of the west wing. After the completion of the 3 phases the inmate is transfered outside the perimeter of the Dome, in the area along river Spaarne, as shown in the map (yellow area - grey enclosed space). Family housing and studios for the inmates are incorporated in the plan. The public promenade from the grand canal passes through this area where open market, shops, park and sport fields can be located. The “prisoners” of the 4th phase will then work there, depending the education and vocational training they had inside the prison.

FLYING OVER THE RAILS
Design Research Project for Msc in Architetural Engineering Technische Universiteit Delft Supervisors: Ir. J Engels, Ir. F.Schnater December 2010

{34}

02

The pavilion is the result of an inquiry in the role of structure in the production of space. A visit at the location, on the outskirts of Haarlem, revealed the need for a cyclist pathway, flying over the rails. The user here is both a visitor and a “voyager”. The first one has a sensorial voyage passing the bridge over the pavilion and the second experiences the responses of this event imprinted on the pavilion itself. This interaction brought to the front of the research a more dynamic, responsive, communicative and open-functional design.

THE EXAMPLE OF CARBON FIBER ARTIFICIAL MEMBERS

{38}

02

Lightness, complexity and movement go with the flow of architecture’s shift towards a less static state.The 4 carbon-fiber sandwich ribbons support the bridge and produce a woven space. The textile mesh that “ties” them together is made out of metal ropes, colorful fabric ones stitched among them and a layer of sprayed-on fabric. The piezoelectric ceramics located both on the 4 connection points of the bridge with the carbon fiber bands, and on the edges of the metal wires, mutate the stresses of compression and tension to electrical current that stimulates the LEDs of the textile surfaces. The result is a responsive textile structure offering experiential effects and aesthetic qualities: a meshed landscape.

Competition Entry for Athensx4 Competition Organized by Ministry of Environment of Greece Design Team: I. Chatzikonstantinou, I. Dilaveraki, D.Papadopoulou December 2010

{46}

03

Aim of this competition was to investigate the major component of the Athenian urban environment: the city block. The latter is related to a series of issues related to circulation, urban micro-climate, privacy, public space and image/ aesthetics. The participants could choose freely 4 adjacent blocks of the city and were asked to address the problems of density, lack of green/ open space, and to submit proposals for their transformation with the optimum utilization of the crossroad (x) that divides them. The proposals would have qualities to allow for repetition in similar urban contexts.

URBAN SCAFFOLDS

Our proposal was focused on addressing the issues present in Greek urban landscapes, while enriching it’s diversity. This vision was manifested into a single, uniform, multipurpose urban element that traverses the urban landscape within the area of the selected blocks. The element transforms itself along it’s course to cater for multiple needs and create spaces of diverse identities: Starting as a shading element for the higher floors of apartment buildings, moving on to become a semi-transparent curtain between facing apartments, climbing over low-rise buildings to organize new public spaces on their terraces and fading out to a light, almost invisible steel frame before disappearing completely.

After the first 10 weeks in which students had been working in their own design proposal for an office space (Best Kees I), one was selected to be developed for a full-scale material prototype. In contrast with the usual designing process during educational courses in which the product is the design itself, this time designs were materialized in to a prototype product.
