A Green Paradigm Shift @ Art Athina

A GREEN PARADIGM SHIFT*: The Fulbright Urban Gardens Project in Athens

How can we, modern Athenians, learning from contemporary practices used worldwide, make Athens a greener, more friendly, meaningful and sustainable city?
  • How to green the underutilised unbuilt space of the greek polykatoikia**?
  • How to turn akalyptos*** into a meaningful landscape and not just a pretty green?
  • How to design a performative and productive landscape related to the mediterranean climate?
  • How to include the initiative and potential of the residents, and promote meaningful to them design?
 THE 4 STEP STRATEGY 
  1.  OCCUPY the akalyptos
  2.  DESIGN access and views
  3.  USE the balconies and staircases
  4.  ENGAGE the polykatoikia residents

*Paradigm shift (or revolutionary science) is the term used by Thomas Kuhn in his influential book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962) to describe a change in basic assumptions within the ruling theory of science. It is in contrast to his idea of normal science.The term paradigm shift, as a change in a fundamental model of events, has since become widely applied to many other realms of human experience as well.
** Polykatoikia (πολυκατοικία) The typical greek configuration of collective housing in a layout of a block of flats. It is common in Greece that the use of the flats is mixed. Most of them are owned by the residents while the minority is rental housing. There is also a tendency of people that come from the same family to occupy a number of flats in the same building. 
*** Akalyptos (ακάλυπτος) The leftover unbuilt space ordered by law. The part of a parcel of urban space that is not covered in order to be used as the open space for the inhabitants of the development. In Greece this space is often left unused, with no green or design, being a low quality space.
