This lecture examines the general concepts and principles of “the spirit of place” and “critical regionalism”. It looks at a few representative examples of architecture from different parts of the world through the lenses of “the spirit of place” and “critical regionalism.” We will then turn our attention to examples of modern architecture in Greece and Turkey. The lecture compares the work of architects Sedad Eldem (from Turkey) and Dimitris Pikionis (from Greece). Finally, it reviews the urban history of Thessaloniki (Salonica), a city in Greece with multiple layers of history and building traditions.
