Urban Metamorphosis III


Urbanity & Processing

The Environmental Health Clinic, Natalie Jeremijenko, NYU (2012)

(w/ Dimitra Gavrilaki) 


How to proclaim an [in]between urban design / architectural discipline?

How to track and [pre]configure a city in flow?

Why data visualization states a new approach on future design?

Why moving away from self-calculated forms?

How does mapping generate a story and vice versa?

Urban Metamorphosis II


​Urban Design Story Telling

Lecture for Paris / New York studio with Moji Baratloo: GSAPP, Columbia University (2012)
(w/ Dimitra Gavrilaki)


Cities today contain more than 50% of the population of the world and this figure is expected to reach 70% by 2030. This statement in itself is almost meaningless. We must question culturally constructed boundaries within cities and understand urbanization as a variation of the urban fabric in terms of density. Furthermore, without a deeper comprehension of the urbanization processes taking place we cannot formulate problemsolving protocols in either local or global urban configurations nor can we even determine what the specific problems are.

Urban Metamorphosis I


​Urban Design Story Telling

Lecture for Paris / New York studio with Moji Baratloo: GSAPP, Columbia University (2011)
(w/ Dimitra Gavrilaki)


Urban Metamorphosis principles:
The city as the main character in a story which serves as a framework  built upon complex structured links.

The city as a cultural construction of constant metamorphic changes due to active multi-condition dynamics (scale, territory, place and network).
The city as a network of social-political enterprises representing a site and a client.

The building as a cause effect artifact emerged from the internalization of urbanization processes.
