Course Content (Syllabus)
From the Ordinary to the Extraordinary. 1. Locate a real apartment. A typical, generic apartment in a typical apartment building in the Greek city. Not a special appartment, not one "with a view", not "neoclassical", not "well-designed", not one located "in front of a park". One that has been built somewhere between 1965 and 1985 and one which is from 65 to 85 sq. meters. One that is like every other. Examine it thoroughly. Not just the space, but also lighting, ventilation, noise, etc, at different times of the day ... 2. Identify the real people who will inhabit it. Not in general and indefinitely: "residents", "students", "architects", "artists", "people who like the same things as you." But real people, with specific needs, limitations, desires, dreams, whims ... Talk to them. What are their occupations? How do they spend their time? How they live their home at different times of the day, and at different times of the year. What would they like to be different? ... Understand the life they are living and how they live in the house they are now living ... 3. Design for them, and along with them, their new residence, as well as a proposal for the entrance of the apartment building in which the apartment is located. Your proposal must be feasible in all respects. Whatever you suggest in terms of materials, furnishings, lighting, planting, etc., you need to study them thoroughly and in detail (in all their components eg availability, cost, construction, etc.). Your designs should be produced at 1:50 / 1:25 / 1: 5 scale and your model at 1:25 scale 4. Discuss with the prospective residents the possibility of implementing your proposal.
