Pieris Architects Talk and Discussion Group to students from Design Schools on the 13th of Mai 2013, at 19:30 at Fresh Hotel, Sofocleous 26, Athens, Greece

Pieris Architects Talk and Discussion Group to students from Design Schools on the 13th of Mai 2013, at 19:30 at Fresh Hotel, Sofocleous 26, Athens, Greece. Bread and Circuses  (from Latin: panem et circenses) is a metaphor for a superficial means of appeasement and is used to describe the creation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace, as an offered "palliative. This phrase originates from the Roman satirist and poet Juvenal (circa 100 A.D.). Roman politicians devised a plan in 140 B.C. to win the votes of these new citizens: giving out cheap food and entertainment, "bread and circuses", would be the most effective way to rise to power.

 

Pieris Architects exhibition Poli- morfic Eco-system which investigates the playground as a means of social reform, becomes the starting point for an open discussion on how contemporary architecture can put aside it's elitist nature and focus on the real social issues that European Cities are facing again due to the recent economic recession.

 
Monographic Εxhibition: Poli* (morfic) Iko** (system), {* Polis= City, ** Ikos= House}
29 Apr 2013

Poli (morphia) explores in urban scale (City) the establishment of playgrounds and recreational areas as a means for social reform and an upgrade of public and private space in the centre of big cities, while Iko (system) is an installation that transforms a living-dining room into a unique playground where the furniture itself -with only a minimum of moves- radically changes shape and use, converting a bookcase into a slide, an armchair into a colourful mill, a dining table into a table tennis table and the seats into a seesaw and musical chairs.
