The Department of Architecture [ARC] invites you to the event “Presentation of the work of Christiana Ioannou + Christos Papastergiou Panagiotis Pierides” on Friday 8th December 2017, 10:00-12:00.

This is part of the series of small events ‘Global and local: architectural dialogues’ of the course ‘Contemporary Architects’ taught by Yiorgos Hadjichristou.

Programme

  • Ioannou Panagiotis, Brinkeviciute Jovita, and Klados Antonis will present the work of Christiana Ioannou + Christos Papastergiou
  • Parfenidis Christoforos, Tsatsouli Eleftheria and Grigoriou Morfo will present the work of Panagiotis Pierides

Starting from the year 2014, the course aims at viewing architecture in its ‘Global and Local’ perspective by examining contemporary foreign and local architects.

Under the ‘Global and Local’ lens, theoretical and practical understanding of the field of architecture will be pursued.

The course will attempt to identify and understand the nature of the Global and the specificity of the local. Due to the scale of the island of Cyprus, the background of the architects and the specificities of its geopolitical conditions there is a need of discussion of its identity in relation to the architectural discourse.

The course will involve local practising architects: The students will present the work of the local architects seen through the prism of the work of foreign architects, in order to generate ‘architectural dialogues’ with the participation of the local architects.

During this event, there is going to be presentations for the following architects: Nader Terhani (Iran/ USA), Cecilia Puga (Chile), Vo Trong Nghia (Vietnam), Emre Arolat (Turkey), Marte Marte (Austria), Wang Shu and Lu Wenue of Amateur Architecture (China).
