The human body is the means to experience and understand the environment. As part of the analysis of the area of the ancient port of Kechries, a performance was held so that through movement a different approach of space will appear. For that action, some red structures were designed and placed as notation of the elements of the landscape. Dancers followed a path that connects the ruins of the two jetties and interacted with features of the surrounding area and the constructions. Through the analysis of that performance, a catalogue was created, listing the elements of the landscape that exceeded as sensational and provided a memorable experience. Based on that catalogue, structures were designed aiming to enhance that experience or reverse it. Their design and location provoke the visitor to wander around, discover different aspects and narrations of the area and acquire intimacy.
