Awards

Doxiadis' Apollonio

With the exposure of raw materials, the articulation of inhabitable objects and an obsessive attention to detail, this refurbishment elaborates on Doxiadis’ Entopia, adopting a Dionysian attitude to preside over the Apollonian. His goal was to design a residential environment that projected his concept of Entopia: “a place which satisfies the dreamer and is acceptable to the scientist, a place where the projections of the artist and the builder merge.”
