The work of Aristide Antonas represents today one of the most interesting practices that uses architecture and design as a form of enquiry into the relationship between architecture and contemporary forms of life. In the lecture Aristide will present his recent work – projects, drawings, texts – as a radical reinterpretation of the concept of ‘minimal habitat’.
“The consequences of a post network social sphere coincide with a different urgency for housing. A silent transformation of the concept of the minimal is operated in the interior of the domestic space. The role of the furniture is re-examined while the inhabitants became users of a different infrastructure. What would this condition of inhabitation mean for the recent radical decline of the west and the new relations between North and South?”
