Wettbewerbsaufgabe / Competition Task
The Greek city, as collective work of architecture, requires restructuring and escalation of its components, to become better perceptible.

Looking from above, one gets the impression of a uniform, ashen layer, spreading over the landscape. This uniformity results both from the overwhelming use of the polykatoikia building typology, as well as from the application of white mortar finishing on most facades, to the point of ubiquity.

Is there a way to invent a combined attack on this double front? Energy performance upgrade through redesigning the image of the city? Can we, as scientists of the human environment, contribute to a new façade vocabulary, that will reflect the need for functional as well as aesthetically stimulating façades?

Can the architects, engineers and urban designers suggest innovative ideas for existing buildings, and improve their performance? At the same time, will they deliver an articulate architectural discourse employing new materials and colors?

Wettbewerbsart / Competition Type
