BASED IN THE PRINCIPLES OF PARAMETRICISM AND PLAYING WITH THE EXISTING MORPHOLOGY OF THE WIDER AREA OF THESSALONIKI, WE TRIED TO EXPLORE NEW PARADIGMS OF HOUSING AND URBANISM. THIS APPROACH DOES NOT AFFECT THE EXISTING CONDITION OF THE URBAN WEB; INSTEAD, IT IS BEING ADAPTIVE TO THE CURRENT AND THE FUTURE NEEDS OF PEOPLE.
The morphology of the building volumes is based on two logics: the logic of fracture and the fractal logic. Divided into two types, perforated buildings with interior private space, that conveys the idea of Greek neighborhood, characterized by volatility, and compact ones, which have a smaller diameter and are scattered into the urban web. The buildings in focal points are taller and as they approach the limits of the urban web, their height decreases, ending up in ground subsidence.
In this way, it creates the feeling of fracture. The buildings appear to move, creating a wave. It IS reminiscent OF the game of life. The figure exudes an introvert. The core extends in all directions, creating fragments. In contrast, the second form of circumferential buildings with compact shape indicates the introversion of modern societies.
The combination of these two forms can be seen as a protest against the existing situation prevalent in modern societies.
