A Collaborative Workshop. Athens & Patras. May 06 - 24, 2019

Demetra Katsota, University of Patras, Department of Architecture
Petros Babasikas, University of Toronto, John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design

A Workshop and Seminar course will be held in Athens for third and fourth year University of Patras architecture students, in collaboration with University of Toronto’s Masters of Architecture Programme. The course will investigate contemporary Athens as a living laboratory of urban transformation, testing contemporary theories of urbanism against different sites and itineraries, asking students to investigate, document and navigate through the city. They will do so via a series of routes and a set of composite drawings ultimately curated in a log. These will provide the base for a site-specific design intervention.
