2 Bridges Built Event 2
Around 2 bridges of Tavronitis River, Crete, March 2005 – September 2005
We were seeking of a bridge but we didn’t know that the specific 2 bridges in Tavronitis would be our focus. It happened that we found 2 bridges: the site became more important than the research principles that were guiding us till then. This was the case for every year’s specific insignificant places. The research for the place was abandoned after the place was found, it would have no interest after the choice of a place. The place was after the research the "only" concept that the working team put as a starting point, always involving the persistence of a conceptual theme. The place, in its Built_Event version is never simply "in itself". This acceptance creates a difference in any place’s architecture; the place’s "presence" denies the metaphysical conception of place in this case: presence seems to be organized (in Built_Event’s structure) as a heterogeneous pile of concepts, non articulated and juxtaposed. The structure of the bounding of a book makes this concept of place more solid. The only stability that makes a place persisting as a place is its possibility to bound together different conceptual layers. The place is defined through this possibility of keeping different versions together: it is formed as a rechargeable book.
