Dimakopoulou 32-34, Athens, Greece
Evangelia and Christina have obtained a MArch degree in Architectural Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens. PPCL started as their diploma project but is an ongoing experiment. It was presented during the symposium “Responsive Cities-Urbanism in the Experience Age" organized by IAAC and KAAU. It has also won a Special Mention in the competition “Sheltering Humanity: Emergency-hosting proposals for people in the Mediterranean Sea” organized by the MOHA Research Center.

Parameterization Platform of Collective Life


Parameterization Platform of Collective Life


Towards a collective, participatory & parameterized design for space production.
File under

PPCL is an experimental proposal for collective life under urban mobility conditions, that is encouraged through an architecture production process.

Via an online platform, enhanced by scientists' and volunteers' collaboration, each person can become part of an emerging socio-material network.

This network is orchestrated through a configuration process of social, spatial, structural parameters, in which the user himself acquires an important role, following the ideology of DIY, DIWO and open source culture.

Keystone of PPCL is the encouragement of collective life through the minimisation of privacy, the expansion of daily activities outside the private spaces and the customisation of public life.
Due to the dynamic and constantly evolving nature of the platform, a flexible and easy-to-use scaffolding system is selected so as to create an easy-to-occupy spatial grid, able to expand over the city, creating alternative and multicultural cores inside the societies.



The nature of this constractional and simultaneously online platform enables its application in different kind of situations and environments. From filling the urban grid's voids, to reclaiming the beaches-receivers of immigrants, for their smooth integration into the heterotopic station of their new lives, this is a birth process of new, alternative and multicultural cities inside pre-existing ones.

By articulating privacy units, eventually the space of collective life is created.
