Landscapes of Tolerance

The concept of a tolerance - the allowances made in digital fabrication to bridge the gap between the vacuum of digital accuracy and physical reality - formed the backbone of a methodology used to unpack the various conditions surrounding the passenger terminal at the Port of Piraeus in Greece. Surrounded by a network of roads and transit routes, the passenger terminal is already divorced from its adjacent neighbourhoods. With the proposals set forth in the 2018 masterplan for the terminal, which include the introduction of 4 new hotels, a new shopping centre, and vast floating cruise ship dock, the port is set to become more isolated from the city, and not benefit from the influx of tourism that the new developments have the potential to harness. If we are to understand that the programmatic resolution of the port is set to increase under these new developments, can a case be made for spaces possessing “low resolution”, or ambiguity?

  • Based on experiences during my undergraduate degree at Edinburgh University and my time in architectural practice, I developed an interest in the intersection between architecture, craft, and fabrication. Pursuing these themes at the Royal College of Art through the creation of 1:1 prototypes, material testing, and experimenting with digital technologies has influenced my own design process, and I intend to carry this methodology forward into practice.
