The Shelters of Spengler
The provisory inhabitation of an idiosyncratic “constructed nature” forms the present architectural investigation. A hidden infrastructure forms an unreal scenography of a life setting performed in a constructed natural; Petasi deserted island situated closed to the busy, touristic island of Hydra hosts a scenographic, fake inhabitation of a supposedly “pure” nature.
The growing imaginary of a glorious nature constructs a flat concept of it. Oswald Arnold Gottfried Spengler describes the specific decline of every civilization (1918) at the phase when it does not produce new values; the western man consciously lives an artificial, uprooted life.
