Notes in triton

10th Venice Biennale of Architecture
The film was implemented in the framework of the Greek participation at the 10th Venice Biennale of Architecture, presenting the theme “The dispersed urbanity of the Aegean Archipelago”.

Its aim is to represent the meeting of twelve Greek architects, which exchange arguments regarding the “city” of the Archipelago. The meeting took place on 18th July 2006 in the ruin of the hotel Xenia “Triton” in Andros, designed by the architect Aris Konstandinidis.

With a constant view to the ruin of “Triton” the film traces the distinct parts of the discussion and it composes the different arguments into a corpus of notes, thoughts and representations that constitute a single narrative discourse, thus presenting and interpreting the character of the Aegean Archipelago as an alternative example of modern urbanity.
