SCENT OF THE AEGEAN
Mobile outdoor exhibition for the islands of the North Aegean Sea
Agency: Media dell’Αrte, Ministry of the Merchant Marine
A scent of the Aegean is a multifaceted event whose aim is to highlight what urban and farming / fishing life is like on the islands of the North Aegean Sea.
In order to present local products from the four islands of the North Aegean in the outdoor space of Ghazi in Athens, a linear construction was built, whose lines make reference to the warehouses along the docks of a port. Four 25 sq.m. spaces were placed in line, next to each other, creating an exhibition infrastructure that can be potentially expanded, as well as the capacity for each segment to be erected independently for other events. In front of each construction, the interior wooden floor extends outward, creating an external rectangular circulation space reminiscent of a pier.
The space is covered by a light roof, whose reclining surface reaches the ground on the rear aspect.
This inclined surface is comprised of multiple segments of cloth placed in such a manner that they form a wave shape in direct reference to the element of the sea.
