Το παιχνίδι με τις ατμόσφαιρες στην πόλη

Abstract : We consider that the notion of ambiance in architecture redefines the children and adults’ relations with their city’s space. The ambiance creation in architecture is considered as a constant ‘game’ between the conditions that assure the appearance of the events and their back-plan, which expresses also the relation between the remarkable and the ordinary character of the architectural creation. In that sense, playing with the ambiances takes the form of the search for interest in the city through everyday practices. The players of the game are both architects and users of all ages. The instructions are described by design approaches – ‘actions of playing’ with the ambiances such as: the removal, the gathering, the dilution, the recurrence of events in order to reveal the back-plan, the isolation, the transition, the connection of events in order to reconfigure the existing and the decoration, the embodiment and the incarnation of the aesthetic relation of the events with their back-plan.
