Panagiotis Voulgaris - "Vessels" By crossing different cities in an architectural way of acting that focuses the interest from the build expression to the landscape, environment and societies this projects addresses broader issues related to a common language, identification and placement in the contemporary world. Shaping a contact web between people, cities and countries is a necessity, a current concern that challenges our ethics and limits by using the element of water as a contact -- unificative vessel and applying a ritual procedure in a symbolic dimension. The nature of the project is ephemeral, nomadic and adaptable by emphasizing to the time continuity of the places around it and becomes an urban collider, a travelling language shaped by transitions, different places and people. It is a floating urban space in micro scale, a metamorphic site in a continual game of transformations as it is capable to transform the environment around it alongside with being changed as a reflection of it in an enigmatic dialectic. In a symbolic but crucial gesture those "Vessels" are currying -- collecting different waters across Europe and travel with them in this process of making a common space, a meeting place. Future is being shaped by individuals, interconnected and interacting. Cities are "Vessels".
