Aquatic Metapolis

An Aquatic Metapolis or The Dispersed Urbanity of the Aegean Archipelago: The example of the Aegean, for reasons associated with historical and geographical circumstances, represents the promise of a different urbanism. It offers the contradictory yet real example of an aquatic city that demands to be seen as a space of desire, because the charm it exerts is not drawn from the reserves of nostalgia, but from the durability of a dwelling structure which contains the promise of a different metacity, dedicated to the cause of freedom. Pavilion of Greece at the 10th International Architecture Exhibition La Bienalle di Venezia, 2006. Curated by Elias Constantopoulos, Korina Filoxenidou, Katerina Kotzia, Lois Papadopoulos
