Paraply Workshop 2024 — The Everyday

Workshop Edition 2
The second edition of Paraply will be led by architecture studios Point Supreme from Athens, Comte/Meuwly from Zurich, and LLRRLLRR from Tallin, bringing together their collective experience in architecture, design, teaching and reuse.

Konstantinos Pantazis and Marianna Rentzou

Point Supreme was founded by Konstantinos Pantazis and Marianna Rentzou in 2008 after living and working in Athens, London, Brussels, Tokyo and Rotterdam. They have won 1st prize in various international competitions including for a Social Housing in Trondheim, a Pier on the coast of Athens, a sheltered public space in Tel Aviv (built), a Firestation in Belgium (built), the New Architecture school in Marseille (built) and an Artists Centre in Genk (built). Their work has been published in three books: ‘Athens Projects’ (Graham Foundation 2015), ‘Radical Realities’ (Divisare, 2017) and a+u (Japan 2023). They have taught at architecture schools such as Columbia University in New York and EPFL in Lausanne. 


Adrien Comte and Adrien Meuwly

Comte/Meuwly cultivate their capacity to be surprised and fascinated by unexpected encounters and discoveries – through meticulous observations of everyday life, exciting experiments, productive failures, and enlightening prototypes. Based on these observations and experiences, projects are developed as narratives, without really knowing how or where it ends. They do not aim at revealing the grandiose, nor the sublime. They are assemblages of characters, scenes, objects, places, and phenomena: anchor points whose beauty emerges from their scrupulous combinations, from their reciprocal interactions. It is about making the most of what is already there, and highlighting opportunities: a subjective interpretation of the situations as found, by a careful selection of qualities and potentials. It turns out that each project detaches from any formal or stylistic research, and becomes rather an experimentation on the world that surrounds us, the general frenzy, the formalities of the administration, the reality of the standards in force: a mean for questioning and reinventing. Everything produced is considered a project, regardless of scale or medium. They all come together in a non-hierarchical narrative, provoking unexpected encounters of fragments, producing new stories, and leading to future experiments.
             The studio was founded by Adrien Comte and Adrien Meuwly in 2017, and is based between Zurich and Geneva.


Laura Linsi and Roland Reemaa

LLRRLLRR was established in 2018 by Laura Linsi and Roland Reemaa, with the focus on exploring material-led, closely involved and situated construction techniques. They enjoy engaging in projects from start by defining briefs, key values, and resources. In 2019, the practice won the Estonian Young Architects Prize for fostering critical discourses in architecture. In 2023, they received the Estonian Academy of Arts Creative Prize. In 2018, with Tadeas Riha they curated the Estonian pavilion at the 16th Venice Biennale of Architecture, titled Weak Monument. They teach architecture studios at UAL Central Saint Martins and the Estonian Academy of Arts and actively participate in workshops and reviews across Europe.


A guest lecture series will be curated to introduce a range of perspectives on “The Everyday”. The exact location of the workshop within Copenhagen will be announced soon.
