When the word “nature” is named, it comes to mind images of wild landscape, with a great chromatic quality where the green color is predominant. In fact many times this way of understanding nature is the most similar to what we understand as life. On the contrary, when we name the word desert, we relate it immediately to death and therefore we never identify it with a rich nature but with a dead nature where life is not possible. The survival is not only a challenge but a constant and exhausting lifestyle.

The Acropolis is the symbol of Athens, an imposing rock spur used in archaic times as a defensive bastion. In the 7th century its militaristic area became the place to celebrate the gods: the construction of the Parthenon, the Propilei, the Eretteo and the Temple of Nike Athena are worth the UNESCO heritage site. The agora, on the other hand, represented the commercial and political hub of the city where all the most important Greek philosophers were. The millenary history of Athens has not stopped renewing itself over the centuries; the streets of the ancient city are often scenarios of political-administrative conflicts. In this atmosphere filled with meanings we want to imagine an architecture capable of translating instances of the past into new contemporaneity.
