Non-places of Transition
Since the beginning of the "crisis" in 2009, Greece has entered a state of transition that extends to present day, which is apparent at both national and international level. Every change in the social and economic situation of a region is reflected on its built environment. Small shops, entire neighborhoods, even greater areas that were, until recently, bustling with life, have been drastically affected by the recession.
Greece has become saturated with structures, spaces and landscapes which no longer hold any identity. Most of these structures, which stand physically present but largely overlooked, even by their own inhabitants, dangle between existence and the lack thereof.
These spaces can be characterized as "Non-places" and are rapidly increasing in numbers due to the impact of the economic crisis. The main characteristic of the current situation is that while space and its properties exist within our everyday lives, we have made the compromise to live among them, thus proving the change in the urban environment, as well as in our own lives.
