Stásis: Towards a Critique of Flexibility in Architecture

Supervisors: Dr Pier Vittorio Aureli, Dr Maria Giudici

The thesis argues that flexibility operates as an architectural tool towards the transformation of spaces that are becoming far from being ‘free’ and instead alienate and restrict their inhabitants. Producing a strange paradox that both enables change and potential and also dictates it, the project conceptualizes flexibility through the idea of stasis, arguing that it unfolds as a technique to achieve a state of stillness.
