Omonoia and Bagkeion constitute our raw material. Omonoia is not just a square, but also a network of people, spaces,and situations. It stands on its own as a symbol-object, historically uninhabitable. Omonoia is the people that ceaselessly pass through it and around it. Today, when millions of refugees are crossing through Europe once more, in Omonoia, a “hearthless abode” is being created. How, through anon-place do we imagine an ecumenical hearth? Habitation, is a work that is looking for lodging within the agony and estrangement of our times. It is a practical contemplation on dwelling.
