WHITE HAVEN

RESORT

PHILLIPINES

/ April 2018

In the early 1970s, Henri Lefebvre put forward the radical hypothesis of the complete urbanization of society which required, in his view, a radical shift from the analysis of urban form to the investigation of urbanization processes. Building upon Lefebvre's modus operandi we approach the site not as an unbuild, natural environment but rather as an urban landscape.

GREEKVILLE: FRAGMENTS OF MEMORY

/ April 2019

The exhibition touches upon issues of migration, self-identity and the ‘architecture of belonging’. It is an architectural and anthropological reading of three American Greektowns; Detroit, Chicago and Tarpon Springs. These three cases provide a unique platform for cultural observations and architectural speculations. We treat them as a medium for criticism and manifestation of the innovative, hybrid and sometimes bizarre concepts of ‘Greekness’ within the north American urban context. In so doing, we aim to provoke a discussion on issues of migration and identity by contemplating on the fusion between modern Greek and American culture.
