As Visconti di Modrone explains, “The project grew out of an idea that we are sure can improve the lives of the residents, but we want them, in their own time, to appropriate it and make it ever livelier. By observing and seeking advice and comments, we are convinced that we can improve the project and make it more effective.”
So far, the tent has hosted videos of World Cup football matches and films in various languages. Ideas for future uses include a fruit and vegetable market “where local Greek producers can sell their products within the camp, in an attempt, among other things, to overcome the residents’ isolation,” says di Modrone.
The project also speaks to the integrity of temporary architecture. As Bettini Oberkalmsteiner says, “A fluid architecture is one that implies flexibility in all processes from assembly to use, from the necessary to the creative, from the indispensable to the minimum for survival.”
