visceral relationships (Castle of Chryssi, Almopia, Greece)
Each public architecture monument, achieves the development of the relationship with the past and the memory of the history between the archaeological site and modern life. The idea of the monument is a conceptual link connection in order to achieve the attendance and reading of the past.
The stones of the Castle of Chryssi -years before its recognition as a memorial- became the raw material for the immediate rehabilitation and housing in the coming refugees from Pontus and Asia Minor. Partly disembodied today, stands at the top of the hill of Chryssi, at Almopia.
This part of the history of the castle, was the occasion to work on a local stone of Almopia. The central objective is to remove the most material as possible, keeping it intact. The stone and the dust that came out of it, are exposed together and coexist in an in-between-them visceral relationship.
