This is a publication of the Pratt Institute School of Architecture. The exhibition, in Cyprus and Greece is accompanied by this catalogue, designed and curated by Christoph a. Kumpusch, PhD architect and professor at Pratt Institute. With a Prologue by Lebbeus Woods. “The work presented in this exhibit , consisting of primarily realized designs, posits the position that architecture is conceived by ideas that are developed through theoretical investigations, inquisitiveness and freedom of thought, and that an act  of architecture achieves its full potential once built. The exhibit itself attempts to demonstrate how and to what degree the design process leading to built and proposed works was informed by the reality of the four subjectively chosen and often interwoven themes: Art Precedent Ground Symbolism The visitor is challenged to evaluate how well the architect has succeeded in reflecting one or more of the chosen themes in the architecture. One is also asked, looking at the student work represented in the exhibit, to winder about the transfer of knowledge that took place between student and teacher. The message this exhibit is meant to send is that it is possible to realize one’s ideas regardless of fame or with limited resources and budgets at your disposal; in other words, a message of optimism at a difficult time of our profession” – Theocharis David
