Konstantinos Pantazis, co-founder of Point Supreme, discusses the work of the Athens-based practice. The talk will focus on ways to challenge the current crisis condition, proactive proposals for improving the city, addressing the collective unconscious and building without money. It presents the processes behind examples from the two opposite ends of Point Supreme’s production: urban proposals and built works.
Point Supreme was founded by Konstantinos Pantazis and Marianna Rentzou in 2007 after living and working in Athens, London, Rotterdam, Brussels and Tokyo. Their work includes self-initiated projects for the improvement of Athens, a selection of which was exhibited at the 2012 Venice Biennale. Their “six d.o.g.s” project for a cultural centre and garden in the centre of the city is an embodiment of those ideas. In 2012 they were named among the 20 most influential personalities in Greece. They were nominated for the Iakov Chernikhov Prize 2014 and included in Wallpaper* magazine’s Architects Directory for 2015. Athens Projects, the first book dedicated to their work, was published in Chicago as part of the Treatise Series in 2015. They are currently building projects in Athens and the Greek islands.
