  • A critical review of people inclusion in the proposal for a new Ministry
           Park at the former Hellenic Defense Systems SA factory in Hymettus

    • Authors: Katerina Christoforaki
      Abstract: In 2021 the Greek government announced the plan to proceed to the relocation of the Hellenic Defense Systems SA facilities, in order to redesign and reuse the remaining area. The factory operates in an enclosed lot of 1.550 acres in the Municipality of Dafni - Hymettus, 4km South of the center of Athens. The reformation focuses mainly on the creation a governmental center the city center Athens, aiming to gather several ministries’ services from scattered buildings in Athens, in an organized Ministry Park.  The Hellenic Defense Systems SA has been operating in these facilities since 1874. At that time the suburb was not densely inhabited. During the first half of the 20th century the city expanded towards its adjacent areas and the factory came to be surrounded by a thick urban fabric. The fenced lot is now located in Hymettus municipal district, which after 2011 is a part of the Dafni – Hymettus Municipality. The fear of a deadly accident due to the flammable materials being processed in the middle of a residential area, in addition to the lack of free public spaces in the city, have created a strong public demand of the factory relocation and the creation of a public park, for several decades now. The total Municipal area is 2.350 acres, 1.000 of which is the former Hymettus Municipality. The Hellenic Defense Systems SA covers the 15% of Hymettus municipal district. The two municipal units, Dafni and Hymettus, differ vividly from one another, due to building morphology differences as well as the barrier set between them by the main road network. It is safe to say that the impact of the existence of the factory currently effects mainly Hymettus district. However, on a second level, the future uses of the area may influence a much wider area. After the governmental statements for the exploitation of the area towards a newly introduced direction, far from prior local demands, serious questions are raised: How detailed was the information published and to what level did it reach the interested parties' Was the public consultation requested' If yes, was it integrated into the reformation strategy' If so, how and to what level' These questions can be answered by monitoring the public opinion and the needs of the actual users of the city. The aim of this paper is to document and evaluate the amount of information that reached the residents of the Municipality, as well as their demands and expectations for the area, after the factory removal. The results will be compared to the actual strategic plan according to the government statements and relevant legislative provisions. The information was collected via questionnaires, retrieval of municipal assembly proceedings, citizen movements’ requests and interviews with both local organizations and administrative representatives. The results identify serious weaknesses in the communication process between authorities and users: There seems to be absence of thorough documentation and prioritization of community needs and demands. In addition, most of the nearby residents do not feel included in the decision-making process nor are aware of a detailed plan for the area. Finally, the users appear discouraged or not willing to contribute to the planning process as they feel that they cannot impact the outcome. Such communication difficulties are a threat to the planning strategy and integration and jeopardize future city resilience.
  • Housing customisation:

    • Authors: Micaela Raposo, Sara Eloy, Miguel Sales Dias
      Abstract: The participation of end-users in the architectural design process is critical to their satisfaction with the built environment. Housing not adjusted to inhabitants' needs leads to modification works that could be avoided if the design of houses was defined from the beginning with their participation. Digital technologies benefit co-design processes by providing non-specialists with a better understanding of space and design possibilities. However, the available literature, shows that existing digital tools were not developed or tested with potential users. This paper defines the requirements and features of a user interface for a co-design tool for housing customisation. Interviews were conducted with potential users, through which requirements were extracted. A framework of tasks is proposed for involving inhabitants in the design definition of their homes.
  • New tools for new spatialities

    • Authors: Gabriela Celani, Marcela Noronha Pinto de Oliveira e Sousa
      Abstract: In this paper we review the concept of Science Parks and its culmination as knowledge-based urban developments (KBUDs) to propose a fourth generation of Science and Technology Areas. In this context we discuss how City Information Modeling, data-driven urban design and digital placemaking can be used to foster innovation and knowledge exchange and trigger the success of these types of urban developments. This new concept is illustrated through the example of the Paris-Saclay Region. An application study is presented and discussed in the development of The International Sustainable Development Hub (HIDS) in Campinas, Brazil.
  • Designing (with) Computational Objects

    • Authors: Miguel Carvalhais
      Abstract: We live in a regime of computation, a post-digital condition in which we coexist with a technological unconscious that surrounds us and saturates our lives. This paper looks at how this affects us as citizens, and transforms our practices as designers, architects, artists, and creators of things. It examines how computation impacts things and spaces—from tools to media, from architecture to environments—and how its affordances breed new objects that are ontologically at odds with the non-computational things and spaces we have grown accustomed to. It enquires how we can negotiate authorial positions in this algorithmic world, and how working within computation reshapes the core tenets of design, or even casts a light onto what those have really been all the time.
  • Inhabiting Digital Worlds: Place, Nearness, Distance

    • Authors: Axel Onur Karamercan
      Abstract: Despite being commonly used, the significance of notions such as digital worlds and spaces remains vague and the extent to which it is bound up with our relation to place and the world is often disregarded. The aim of this article is to clarify the philosophical underpinnings of these notions, identify the problematic aspects of our relation to digital technologies and explore the possibility of developing an appropriate way of being in digital spaces and environments. In drawing from the 20th century German thinker Martin Heidegger’s philosophy of place and technology, the article identifies the sources of the prevailing neglect and problematizes the modern conception of the world as a mere spatial network. Then it outlines the phenomenological boundaries of digital spaces, and by giving particular attention to explaining the ontological and hermeneutic significances of the notion of distance. In doing so, it offers a topological mode of thinking to make sense of the interplay between nearness and remoteness and arrives at three distinct meanings of distance.
