Elliniko, Athens, Greece
The building emerges as a mediator between the user, nature and history, on a canvas that includes different architectural investigations. This approach, as expressed spatially, entails materiality, density, gravity, temperature and acoustic qualities, elements that are not related to abstract concepts but more to a thorough user experience. As an emerging system, the building enables the participation in a series of interactions between the natural and the artificial, the fore-ground and the background, the “reminiscent” and present time, activating senses and emotions that correspond each time in the “potentiality” of the moment. In this journey, experiences and spaces intersect, producing an intricate choreography of stories and events.
