This thesis is a continuation of my research project entitled: "Self-sufficiency practices: a survival manual from Sourpi and Lachanas".
The basic meanings of "self-sufficiency", "storage", and "movement" through an intergenerational memory, which were of interest to me in my research, continue to be key elements of the thesis. Moreover, they focus on personal experience and the necessity of sharing goods, practices, and knowledge with others through contemporary lifestyles.
The narrative begins, in chronological order, through extensive observation and research, about the life and daily practices of my relatives in the two villages where I come from. At first as a simple observer and then as an active subject and its relationship with the materials, objects, and environment of those two places. An architectural design is therefore performed based on "experience", "sensory experiences", "feeling", "care" and "performance".
The narrative culminates in the discovery and composition of a construction that on the one hand serves to save and move, and on the other creates the conditions for sharing and interaction.
"To kafasi" finds its own place during the narrative and is the predominant object of synthesis and research.
