Βus Ηotel front view

A bed and breakfast space rationale is installed in an existing bus structure. The vehicle's skin remains practically intact. The collage strategy functions here in an invisible manner. We have not seen such a bus, but nothing is striking in this transformation. We don't even know what such a construction will host. Nevertheless we may know how to inhabit it. This knowledge of inhabitation comes together with the function of the elements that are put inside the bus. Typical banal elements show us already how to interact with them. The beds, the sofa, the water closet, the shower, the small wardrobes, the bookcases already speak about a particular type of stay in which we know how to behave. They are all elements of a given functionalism, traditional now originated from modernism. They are elements that are monumentalizing or stabilizing in a banal way the small narrations of the everyday house. The joints that are made between these objects of domestic everyday life and an empty bus create the hotel BUS as a platform. The fragments of a domestic archeology propose a mnemonic rearrangement for the space of a vehicle. Mnemonic ready-mades are proposed for a mobile melted form that is awaiting possible functions. A programmatic design proposes the possibilities of a transposition in the program. The sole mnemonic rearrangement determines the type of a proposed architectonic amnesia.
