Introduction
My wider research entails placemaking, phenomenology, hermeneutics, tectonics, poetics, ethics and design/build—both theoretically and practically. Along these lines, I have developed a furniture design/build work which explores the dialogue between carpentry and poetry. Building on this line of work, my ongoing collaborative projects include small-scale architectural installations with a focus on tectonics and story-telling.

Drawing from Martin Heidegger’s notion of poiesis and Henri Lefebvre’s definition of urbanization, we elaborate on the w...
Chapter
Cast in the beginning of time, the rock pillars of Meteora make room for an ascetic and monastic life supporting and supported by the monks who have dwelled there for almost a millennium. It is commonly accepted that the landscape of Meteora has a poetry-like quality. In step with the poetics of place, the testimonies of Meteora bring myths and fac...
