The course examines the natural and man-made environment of Santorini, focusing on the morphology born out of the volcanic and seismic underground laboratory of the insular complex, as well as the condition for the inhabitation of the cliffs (caldera) and the valleys (potamoi) with the use of local materials. 

The topomorphy of Santorini and the forms of inhabitation it implies, consist the thematic for the study of the Therean cultural continuum from the prehistoric house of Akrotiri, the traditional and modern heritage, up to the contemporary condition, in order to interpret the local architectural idiomatic expression during the 20th and 21st centuries.
