Coastal Commons
4th year Architectural Design Option Studio, SS 2019-20

Coastal Domains Design Research
Department of Architecture, University of Patras - GR

During spring semester 2019-20, Coastal Commons was the seventh architectural design option studio of the Coastal Domains interdisciplinary, independent design research at the Department of Architecture of the University of Patras (DoAUP). Since 2016 and through a multitude of case studies on targeted coastal territorial contexts, the initiative explores, records, assesses, and envisions sustainable futures for the North-eastern Mediterranean coastal territories. Coastal Domains aims to study the Coastal Landscape as a critical subject of architecture. The activities of the Coastal Domains initiative are grounded in a rigorous and extensive territorial analysis of specific geographical contexts, focusing on complex forms and means of representation. The online platform is an archive and networking tool to consolidate, link and make public academic research and activities, design projects, references and data.
