The surface of Greek ground is previously lifted off in order to create mountainous volumes and in the same time is sunk in ravines and steep slopes, in order to emerge once again through water, shaping islands. This fall back of ground lends different qualities in the space and arises architectural actions.
The particular treatise is dealing with the emertion and the immersion of the earth’s rind, related with two architectural projects. A summer house created by Aris Konstantinidis and the martial shelters - bunkers. The art of architecture is being presented as a "container of life" and as a mean of service, through forms that disappear in the landscape and are located in the island of Aegina.
The building of Konstantinidis is lifted off and comes out from the ground using its materials. The shelters extract departments of ground in order to return and be placed in the cavities that they created. Above the ground and under the sky, the human being tries to create constructions that will receive residences. In the first case the surface of the earth is presented as mean of emertion and in the second as camouflage. The house declares its presence in the landscape and the bunker treats it as a cover.
The above observations on the relation of landscape, architecture and person are based mainly on the philosophy of Martin Heidegger.
