studioentropia is an interdisciplinary design studio that integrates architecture and the visual arts. Based in Athens, Greece and founded in 2007 by Yota Passia and Panagiotis Roupas, the studio's expertise is on architecture and art. By integrating theoretical speculation, multi-disciplinary collaborations and consistent innovative disciplinary approaches we theorize architecture as a versatile, dynamic, and open spatial system justified by its ability to differentiate.

Hecate_The Affective City


Mapping the affordances of the city's sociospatial ecologies
Hecate is an urban infrastructural system and a visual thinking tool that maps the city's complexity and possible futures.

  • New areas of operation

While space is generally perceived as a changing field of dense interactions that occur in multiple spatiotemporal scales, we are unable to perceive or describe it in these terms. The project aims at redefining space in order to reveal the invisible system of its interactions by gathering significant information about the city and establishing for them a means of communication. Hecate is both a virtual map and an urban infrastructural system. As a virtual map it poses a methodology and a visual thinking tool that pushes the limits of our minds' cognitive capacities to better perceive and visualize space's intricate complexity. As an infrastructural system, it is an interactive city scape that functions as the city's nervous system. It is visualized as a network of richly interconnected nodes of varying intensities, each representing information flows between the system and the city. Hecate is itself a new map of the territory, in constant flux.
