The intervention is located inside the Krafsidon river in Volos and aims to create a fragile situation between the urban scale uses of land situated along the river bed.
Almost water is a parametrical system that changes in order to accommodate different functions. Water because the aquatic element is approached both according to its form and its flow pattern. Almost because an attempt is made to create an in-between situation that is constantly evolving, following with some divergence the presence and the absence of water and also because it suggests a sequence of uses by removing the strict boundaries, a sequence from the useless to the useful, one open transition from situation to situation. The constantly changing presence of water and its key position – as an in-between dead space – has lead to the quest for a less “confined” situation.
Finding the sense of time, both because of the evolution of the program as well as because of the unstable presence of the water, has lead to the need to design a system that could evolve either by obeying a rule or by ignoring it. Elasticity in both form and use interpretation is wanted. Looking for fluidity through form, entered discontinuity and the alternation between thickness and scarceness.
