Transformation of the public-private space relation in the social housing complexes(in Greek cities)
[ P. Koutrolikou, M. Kopanari, F. Vatavali, V. Guizeli, C. Marathou, S, Stavrides (scientific resp.) ]

This research is focused on the reappraisal of the historically specific forms through which the relation between public and private spaces was treated in the design, construction and the inhabitation of the social housing complexes in Greece. Crucial for the reserach is the theoretical investigation of the meaning and the use of the terms public and private and the search for terms to describe intermediate relations conceptualizing "in-betweeness". The history and inhabiting experience of the Greek social housing complexes will be used for the development of theoretical tools which may be usefull in architecture and urban planning theory.
