What follows the building model of “polykatoikia” is a critical analysis of the present situation, where there is no clear solution offered for a new version of dwelling, a standby condition.

Along with the economic activity and the tenants, the selected building block is being abandoned by all assumptions that used to define the hierarchy of the values and the needs.

The designing process emphasizes the concept of time.

During the analysis of the building block elements or conditions ,associated with the concept of time or the condition of standby,are identified.

The ultimate goal is to redefine the perception of spaces in the building block

in accordance with the movement [sunrise-sunset] of the sun, with the manner in which light enters the space, the observation of a piece of sky framed or the manner in which the air and the sound enters the field.
