By his nature, man is restricted to move around on one “earth”. Apparently, he is indispensably linked to the horizontal level. Even if there is no horizontal level, man will have to create it in order to exist within that surface.
Within a structural methodology, the idea of creating a ‘knitten’ dwelling was perceived. The dwelling is fixed on a horizontal framework, which is bent and coated so as to formulate a house. It has the shape of a needlecraft made out of wire-netting, so as a spider spins its web.
The structure materials, not being regular building materials, acquire a self-activity and function equally well on the sharp relief rocky surface as on a vertical side of a wall. Each wire spoke’s dimension is flexible in order to follow the limitations of the rocky surface and adapt to its morphology. The design of this model-dwelling was fulfilled after the experimental in situ application of the structure, which served as a moto so as to improve some structural details and to confirm its feasibility.
Finally, this model-dwelling may be used as an independent unit or provide a wide range of applications and compositions on a non-horizontal surface. It might be used as either plain ground, corridor, sleeping nest or room. On the same structure, a complex of public, entertainment or dwelling spaces might be applied. An indicative place to create such a structure was located in the area of Agios Onoufrios, Magnesia, near the chapel of Agios Nikolakis. The model-dwelling was therefore constructed on the steep slope of a rock to operate as a model-hospice by the local Mountaineering Club, a space to acquaint oneself with the rock and experience the extreme habitation.
