Through texts, mappings and myths I construct a fantasy about a place, an architectural narrative that attempts to reveal the intangible and fictional, however completely pragmatic in their conventions, interpretations of the place. while contemplating upon the controversial relationship of the modern man with the idealized perception of landscape.
The Scenario: a modern traveler is wandering across the artificial lake of Ladhon in Arcadia, in Peloponnese. Detached as he is from the landscape he enters it as a spectator and being aware of his position, he begins in his writings a parallel wandering in the landscape of his imagination.
We follow his wandering through his notes found lying close to the dam. During his tour he experiences the transition from the real fragments of the landscape to their fictional interpretations
as they are refracted through their mythical references.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN ARCADIA | An architectural narrative | 2012 | Design Thesis | University of Patras | Tutor: Panos Dragonas
"Arcadia doesn’t impose itself. It is a never fading image on the horizon.
And when I leave this place, you will only be left with this story in your minds: representations of timeless events that took place once upon a time in Arcadia.
Thus, somewhere between the uncanny but compact world of fantasy and the familiar space of reality you will in your turn say: et in Arcadia ego”
