Lecture by Marianna Rentzou (Point Supreme).

Marianna Rentzou, architect and founding partner at Point Supreme, based in Athens, will lecture on Tuesday 12 March at 5 pm. Her lecture, titled “The Way We Live,” , will be introduced by prof. Paola Giaconia.

Marianna will showcase a selection of their projects, encompassing both built structures and conceptual designs. In these endeavors, Point Supreme fearlessly blends elements of low and high culture, merges industrial and vernacular components, and juxtaposes iconic architectural tropes with everyday features. 

Marianna Rentzou and Konstantinos Pantazis established Point Supreme in Rotterdam in 2008 after living and working in Athens, London, Brussels, Tokyo and Rotterdam. The essence of their work lies in seamlessly integrating research, architecture, and urban design. Their accolades include 1st prizes in various international competitions such as 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 (C-mine Atelier, built).
Point Supreme consistently contributes to architectural discourse by publishing self-initiated projects for Athens. Their portfolio has been showcased at esteemed events such as the Venice and Chicago Biennale and the Lisbon Triennale. Notably, their work has been documented in three books: ‘Athens Projects’ (Graham Foundation, 2015), ‘Radical Realities’ (Divisare, 2017), and a dedicated issue of a+u magazine (May 2023).
Beyond their design practice, Marianna and Konstantinos have shared their expertise as educators at institutions like Columbia University in New York and EPFL in Lausanne. Recognized among the 20 most influential personalities in Greece by a leading Greek newspaper, they are actively engaged in building projects both within Greece and abroad.
