THE ARCHITECTURE RESEARCH CENTER [ARC]

In Fall 2010, the Department of Architecture moved into new facilities that have been designed specifically to fulfil the needs of the program.

The new building, a converted shoe factory, allows faculty and students to work together and continue to build the architectural program according to our mission statement.

EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL COLLABORATORS

The architecture office of Associate Professor Yiorgos Hadjichristou (Yiorgos Hadjichristou, Petros Konstan­tinou, Veronika Antoniou, Teigas Joao, internal collaborators: Ioanna Iosef, Michalis Thrasyvoulou and Nasios Varnava) and Alessandra Swiny as an external advisor de­signed the building, which includes: ten main studio spaces (two per year), an entrance foyer, and a central amphitheatre.

All are designed to be easily converted into one ex­pansive open-plan space for special events, such as final year exhibitions, major public lectures, large workshops, and recreational events. Additional facilities include a com­puter lab, printer room, library, workshop, classrooms, faculty offices, study rooms, and administrative rooms. There is also a cafeteria, a student lounge, and a rooftop terrace.

[ARC] Labs

Students and Faculty have access to the Department’s Digital Fabrication Workshop (F-LAB), the Wood Workshop (W-LAB) and the Computer facilities(C-LAB).

The Workshops are University facilities containing Digital prototyping equipment and Wood-Workshop Tools and machinery, which individual students or groups of students can use to produce architectural models and prototypes upon request. The use of the technologies is part of several courses and workshops within the architectural and interior programs. The Workshops currently employ an A0 open laser cutting machine, a CNC milling machine, 3 x 3D printers and a large series of Hand tools and Power Tools in wood processing.

The computer lab (C-LAB) is situated in [ARC] first floor and it is equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software providing modern facilities for both students and faculty. Software cover all range of digital design needs including 2D drafting, 3D modeling, parametric modeling, animation, rendering and for software for image processing.

The laboratories are well supervised and maintained by a very efficient and experienced support team. Staff, currently consists of four experienced LAB operators and five student assistants under the general supervision of a Lab-Manager. An Academic Lab coordinator ensures that courses and research projects are sufficiently supported by the equipment (hardware/software) and staff.
