Made in Greece Plus: Architecture Now

In a period where world's news are occupied by the economical crisis in Greece, Museum of Science in Boston presents Made in Greece Plus: Architecture Now, as one of its temporary exhibits. In case you love either Greece or Architecture, do not miss this show!




 

From the curatorial statement:
"Made in Greece Plus exhibits contemporary built and unbuilt work by young Greek architects that demonstrate how design thinking, technological innovation, and scientific research play a role in the creation of the human-made environment.

Sixteen architectural projects have been selected for the clarity of their objectives and the experimental character of their design strategies. These works are juxtaposed with one research installation that showcases how computational technology can foster design education.

The diverse repertoire includes works that use digital technology to reinterpret craftsmanship; incorporate landscape topography to complement built form; mutate traditional typologies to invent new ones; organize building volumes to reflect social structure; create transformable interiors to maximize utilization of space; use social stereotypes to criticize culture; and develop computational tools to nurture structural intuition.

Through these examples, Made in Greece Plus illustrates the value of design in the current socioeconomic conditions in Greece."

The show is at Boston Museum of Science in the Green Wing, Level 2, and will be running until mid June. More information about Museum of Science schedule you can find at the MoS website.
