Venice Biennale 2014 – Works at the Greek Pavilion by R.C.TECH

A few months back, R.C.TECH undertook the construction works for the setup of the Greek participation in the 14th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice. The participation was directed and curated by National Commissioner, professor Yannis Aesopos under the title “Tourism Landscapes: Remaking Greece”.
The exhibition is now running at the Acropolis Museum and will be open to public until 19thApril. For more information visit the exhibition’s  website.
The exhibition examines and presents –through examples of both built and unrealized projects as well as through new designs developed for the exhibition by Greek and foreign architects– architectures of tourism as tools for the modernization of the country and the shaping of its identity.

A Summer Video by R.C.TECH

A couple of summers back, director Orfeas Peretzis produced a beautiful short video on the Zarmynarie House  - a vacation hamlet located on a hilltop near the village of Gerakari in Kythera. It overlooks Cavo Malea and hosts a big atrium at its center which acts as a living core, surrounded by verandas and interior spaces with breathtaking views.
