MEDS Workshop Greece 2019 event

MEDS workshop “Meetings of Design Students” is an international workshop that takes part each summer in a different country, focusing on various issues, themes, topics and settings that will help any designer expand their expertise. It is a chance to get in touch with diverse approaches to design, different building techniques, traditions, and skills. MEDS workshop is both practical and educational because it focuses not only on crea-tive theoretical designs, but actually compels participants to execute these designs during the 2-week span of the workshop.

Past workshops have taken place at Turkey, Slovenia, Portugal, Ireland, Serbia, Romania, Belgium, and Lebanon.

The house necessarily unfolds along the south side, the side of the sun: through a double curvature the building is bend by the power of the sun’s path from east to west.
