Proposal for a library and an artists' hub in Theatre Vursodepsio

This project is a voluntary initiaitive and will be constructed with the contribution, of designers and builders. he main idea is to reuse material in a whole new concept and recycle our old furniture and stuff.

This is a box I proposed for the theatre Vursodepsio to accomodate a library and an artisits' collective inside a very interesting industrial building, in Athens.The brief demanded a low budget construction and the use of light, as the space lacks of natural lighting.

I chose polyester curved walls to allow the general lighting in the space, placed on a wooden construction that would work as a sitting or a studying surface inside the box. The rest of the elements will be made of recycled material, like wooden paletts, old furniture, grossery boxes, bottles and recycled fabrics.

Here are two proposals I made for the creation of a box that will host the Library and the artists' hub inside the space of "Vyrsodepseio" building

Big Facade


Book Selves for the Library (the selves could be a patchwork of selves and grossery boxes, or drawers from old furniture)

Here are some ideas of furniture we are going to create out of recycled material

Displaced in London

This project consists of different experiments executed in the urban environment of London, in non places (according to Marc Auge), like train stations, cemeteries and parks. Using materials of the everyday life we created small interventions in the city aiming to surprise or just proposing uses of places, that one could not imagine, by unexpectedly shifting the visual imagery of a place.

The Design

The country that the text talks about has specific characteristics. The basic element that defines it (her, as a feminine identity is attributed to the specific country, in Greek – the country is a feminine noun) is the earth, her soil. It is like the blood of a body; the ground of her people, the key ingredient. There are points within the text that the writer uses the earth as a symbolism to describe the weightiness of the country. 

For this play, I created a dirty, earthy, grounded, introspective, primitive design.
Soil was the material for this design, which I introduced to the rehearsals. The actors embodied the soil each one by her way. Apart from identity, soil symbolizes the eternal cycle of life and death. We are born from it and we die in it; the body and the material in absolute harmony.
