We shape an axis of public uses at the heart of the park, consisting of two buildings linked with a traverse aisle. We reuse an existing stone warehouse as restaurant and design a public lounge. The second lies between two types of yards: a small enclosed backyard at the verge of the olive grove and an open one facing the view of the sea.
The remaining no man's land amidst three motorways in a previously industrial site in the suburbs of Patra is reformed into a park of dwellings for the visiting teachers of the university that lies nearby.
The intervention traces a shift from the artificial to the natural; it redefines a degenerate piece of nature and attributes it to the city.
The artificial spoiled landscape is identified as different types of topographies: a slope, a field of weeds and a pit with stagnant water.
It is then turned into a receptor-sub base of “artificial” nature, where sentimental routes are directed, along which one experiences its different qualities.
It consists of three types of essential dwellings corresponding to the types of living and experiencing nature in three different landscapes: the terraced olive grove, the field and the marshland.
