It is a great honor and pleasure for the fact that a department of architecture has chosen to use the architectural competition as part of the educational process and indeed to participate with many different proposals. This fact shows that the choice of the specific issue overpass the narrow topographic boundaries of Greece and constitutes an object of problematic at a wider level, by promoting simultaneously Athens internationally.

Piraeus Tower studio launched

This is the online platform for Organicités: Piraeus Tower, an architectural design studio taught by Jeffrey Huang, Trevor Patt, and Nathaniel Zuelzke at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in the Spring semester 2010.

If it is your first time at the site, we recommend you see Using the SuperStudio Platform.

The Organicités studios explore the digital generation of architecture using biological paradigms. Asking such questions as:

  • How can the dynamic achieved by these analogies produce sophisticated and contemporary forms empathetic with natural ecology?
  • How can this inbuilt empathy produce formal innovation and ensure performance-oriented architecture attuned with its environment to suggest a redefinition of architectural sustainability?

The site is also part of SuperStudio, a longer-term investigation into the impact of digital technologies and techniques on the studio pedagogy. The SuperStudio platform is composed of a set of web applications giving an overview of activity and collaboration within the atelier.

Previous Organicités and SuperStudio researches can be found in the Past Studios archives to the right.
