Re-forming Piraeus Tower

The first-phase research shall be applied to the reconceptualization and re-skinning of Piraeus Tower in Athens, Greece. Loosely based upon the competition Piraeus Tower 2010: Changing The Face, the design project confronts students with the notion that architectural formation occurs at multiple interrelated scales, each a product of physical constraints, functional requirements, and design impositions. The competition supplies a rich urban, cultural context within which to test the studio’s parametric-tectonic agenda.
