Introducing different ways of creating architectural space, based on controlled transformations of physical models.

Composing Architecture and Interior Design introduces different ways of creating architectural space. It explains how to compose architectural and interior design spaces step by step - starting in the first years of architecture and interior design studies - and beyond.

The book starts with introducing different spatial configurations using basic elements such as walls, floors and ceilings in order to create spaces with different architectural characteristics, such as collective or transition spaces. Photos of physical models are graphically edited to ensure a comprehensive visual explanation. Physical models are the main tool for all architecture and interior architecture students, allowing readers to understand, relate and copy the modelling techniques shown in each example.Throughout the book this same approach is used, in order to explain step by step the most contemporary approaches of composing space, such as folding surfaces or combining curves which already are often used in contemporary practices and globally acknowledged built project.


Simos Vamvakidis holds a PhD in Generative & Parametric design in architecture from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). Prior to that, he obtained a Master’s in Architecture post professional degree (MArchII) from the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA).  He also holds a BSc in Civil Engineering and a Degree and Master’s in Architecture from NTUA. His teaching experience inclu­des architecture schools in the UK, Greece and Lebanon, where he taught 4th- and 5th year design students as a Lecturer and as a Visiting Assistant Professor.  He founded the architecture office SVstudio in 2008, an office that has won prizes in a number of international architectural competitions.
