This is a story about many illusions that come true - the night light of Greece reflects the bright light of your face, lingering in the gallery after the closing, not to look at the exhibition and silently chewing on the ambiguity, but It is the most indispensable joy for satisfying life.

The Clumsies Bar in Athens: a dream of two bartending champions

By

"Micro-small" is the reaction of the chemical substance ethanol after the body chemical action after drinking a mouthful of alcohol. The brain will enter the state of excitement and make people feel dizzy in the process of metabolizing ethanol to acetic acid; but if you use the scientific method, the effect of the skin on the body is indeed contrary to the life brought by alcohol. Feelings. If you use the right amount of money to understand the wisdom of alcohol fermentation; even the freshly decaying sweet fruit also contains alcohol, then after drinking a well-designed special cocktail, you will have a mood change, excitement, and carnival, why? Not a great enjoyment in life. Athens, 8 km from the Aegean Sea, is surrounded by many famous philosophers, writers and politicians, and the famous Greek mythology is also fermented over time. This is an old town suitable for letting imagination and tasting a "slightly" and telling the story of life. Find a spiritual and emotional redemption for a boring life. On the Praxitelous Street in Athens, The Clumsies is named after the “Best Bar in the World”; the retro-aged tonality is experimental and elegant, both elegant and impulsive – when you drink into your throat Before the delicious and delicious, its wine-drinking method has a little bit of fun. Back in 2012, the two World Wine Classes Vassilis Kyritsis (2012 Greek Bartender World Champion) and Nikos Bakoulis (2011 Greek Bartender World Class Champion) met in the same bar; they shared each other Recognizing the identity of the bartender, I believe that a good bartender should not only choose an impeccable formula, but also connect the guests with drinks. After a few years of experimentation, they worked with several other partners to create The Clumsies. The Clumsies are hidden in neoclassical architecture in 1903, but far beyond the imagination of a modern gentleman's club. In the Clumsies space created by the Nine Design design team, some of the paved wooden floors and natural light of the bath are warm tones. The wall cabinets are covered with various wine glasses and drinks; each room has its own style: The old-fashioned library lamp holder, the mysterious neon cloister, the café-like comfortable seating area, the corner of the bed where people can "lie down and drink", and the old apartment in the movie, with a billiard ball. Retro home cubicle with table. For Nikos and Vassilis, the contact with alcoholic people is an important part of their work, and the fun of interaction is reflected in the design of the winemaking process. The classic list of bartending is a wooden box filled with a variety of fragrant glass mason jars, and the alcoholic can guess the desired bartending by smelling the smell. Last year, The Clumsies also developed a new order – dividing the drink into “past,” “now,” and “future.” In a wit game like a board game, alcoholics should not just drink, but also drink. Before the little brains! Reminiscent of the story of Dionysus, the god of wine in Greek mythology, He has the power of intoxication, allowing people to enjoy the carefree moments of life, but also let people fall apart from the sacred; protect the Greek agriculture, drama Culture gives the world joy and happiness. The Clumsies enjoys their enjoyment and enjoyment. The alcoholic travels through the rooms and listens to jazz swings while sipping a world-class drink. I believe the story in the bar must be beyond the slightest; perhaps for local drinkers, This is a small wine god festival in life, full of emotions and brains of a dream. The...

Light and thin like a wing, gentle as moonlight: light house in Athens

By

The romance of Paris is a drop of the quaintness of the Athens style, like the old songs of ancient Greek architecture. Located in the suburbs of Athens, Glyfada, every night, you can see the silhouette of the plant on the wall of the building, like an ancient Greek relief sculpture; this is the architectural team 314 Architecture Studio named "H102 Romance Contemporaine's architectural plan, which was hailed as "the place where the Greek rich gathered," created a romantic and innovative roof house, like a piece of white jade, adding a few French feelings to the tranquil atmosphere. An Athens apartment originally built in the 1970s, the appearance of the building team's clever hands, gradually germinated and formed by a monotonous and boring white rectangle, growing into a pair of light-colored wings. The 314 Architecture Studio team, which specializes in white geometrical and warm light, explains: "With a continuous engraving, the whole building is like a transparent body with a lot of light and shadow imprints." The wall, as well as the transparent material selection that changes with the light and shadow, makes the roof have both the ancient Greek memories and the sleek curved shape of the ancient women's gauze. The ironing is the mural poetry carefully crafted by the architectural studio, and a touch of the pair. The future of the city. The interior of the apartment was transformed into a four-story, perpetual building through romantic brushstrokes. The indoor space replaces the wall with tropical plants, constructs a private atrium, and has a second living room to allow internal and external space to circulate, achieve a good air circulation, and reduce energy waste. The second floor and above have a good view, which can be used as a formal gathering space; the top floor is equipped with slidable metal woven curtains, and the master bedroom is boldly set here. It looks like a piece of ancient Greek-style traditional draping, romantic and modern. While retaining privacy, it also frames the ups and downs of the remote Immitos Mountain and the wide blue sky of the Aegean Sea. It is like a magnificent view of the ancient Athens period. Nowadays, the Greek economy is facing difficulties. The rich areas of the capital still pursue the ultimate aesthetics without being affected. It may seem that they are somewhat out of touch, but looking at history, most of the cultural assets we see today are from the past and life. The exquisite pursuit of beauty. Perhaps the reform is not a phenomenon of "richness", but an uneven distribution of wealth and the concept of people's money. If one day people's basic wealth needs can be guaranteed, and the rich people are willing to embrace the hearts of the world, then many artists in the world can create a piece of art in the world like 314 Architecture Studio in Glyfada.

Collage Narrative of Architecture: Athens Petralona House

By

Modernist architecture of the twentieth century (reviewing the modernist confession of the 20th century architect EILEEN GRAY & L4 HOUSE by the architect Argentine architect Luciano Kruk), which greatly influences the style of today's architecture, geometric lines, minimalist architecture The styling became a trend, with high-rise buildings and buildings. The Greek architectural team Point Supreme Architects rebuilt a low-rise old house in Athens with a collage approach, becoming a three-story mixed-race building, Petrolona House. The "collage" technique came from the beginning of the last century by the cubist painters Pablo Picasso and George Braque, the two pioneers who blended various media on the plane of the painting. Use, to explore how the changes in the media show each other's impact and characteristics, affecting the later surreal, Dada and Pop Art. During and after World War I, the Dadaism boom spread in Europe; under the spirit of accidentality and emptiness, Dadaists practiced the collage techniques while disintegrating the order of the old world, in addition to expressing anti-war trends. The protest was dissatisfied with the bourgeois value that prevailed at the time. However, collage is often not so pleasing in architectural design, because it is often simplified as a combination of visual color blocks; "Meeting in a plane that is unfamiliar to both sides," German artist Max Ernst once described. Point Supreme Architects's duo architects Konstantinos Pantazis and Marianna Rentzou believe that if you don't just use visual color blocks to understand architecture, but instead use a variety of different spatial experiences as a priority for architectural design, you can create unique Spatial narrative. We hope that the work is not only related to collages and colors, it is too easy to misunderstand. Our priority is to use collage to create different sensory experiences – collages are just the way to achieve their goals. So the story of space is far more necessary than collage. Originally a traditional one-story residential building in Athens, Petralona House blends the imagination of the architects and their architectural experience and architectural space in the Netherlands and London. The first floor partially retains the look of the home, using a large amount of glass to connect the natural space of the courtyard; the second floor uses a retro canopy, windows and balconies to connect traditional Greek life; the top floor is an extended white box – even reminiscent of The collage style is very different from the work of modernist master Kirby. "In fact, it blends elements of many different homes that create a new sense of story in the space." The design team explained the coherent approach from nature to life, humanity, and abstraction from a building. Inside the building, a large number of remanufactured or second-hand items are used to talk to the building, and some of the materials are provided by local residents. They are creating unique buildings in nature, interpersonal communication, and ideals. It is also what the construction team believes: there is a focus in various contradictory, relative, and heterogeneous contexts that can cover various differences. .

Travel Notes: Slow Live Athens, Greece

By

Most people now talk about Greece, probably thinking of a bankrupt and economically depressed country, and then it may be a social issue that associates with riots and refugees. When I really traveled to the city, I felt that no matter where in the world, every day, dangerous things are always happening, and relatively beautiful things never stop at the same time.

置身夢境的超現實餐廳 雅典 Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center 用餐區

A dreamlike surreal restaurant Athens Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center dining area

By

The gallery is often unattainable in life, like a Parisian girl with a little arrogance on her face, or an Italian boy who is sitting on a motorcycle with a cigarette and releasing a bohemian, confessing frankly. However, it exudes a fascinating tonality that makes us feel unconstrained. On the first floor of the Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center in Athens, a new dining space, 48 Urban Garden, is being refurbished by the architect firm AK-A, using natural oblique light from the open-air garden in front. Green plants with large vines and a large number of wooden benches make the outdoor a warm and pleasant block. The indoor high-profile design is almost the height of the double-storey building. It is connected with the bright and lush sight of the outdoor. It uses a bar with a high and low brightness and a main dining area, a picnic table and chairs, and a complementary color block. The design, a large number of artificial or natural green plants, indirectly presents a sense of detachment that is somewhere in the forest, and as long as you turn around, you can also adjust to become bright light in the sun. There is no place to hide in the bar area, and when the night comes, but under the slight illuminating light string on the top of the head, it is hidden into a mysterious atmosphere like a swamp. We can walk along the river bank slowly in the fresh air outdoors. In the area, when the cold wind blows, it will shuttle to the warm area with dim light. The architect said that the tone is very simple. Olive green, white, light green, and black and brown wooden objects on the surface are a dining room that does not leave the original architectural frame, but is shallow and filled with cute and charming! The ingredients used are not at all sloppy. From the local organic raw materials and the starting point of the concept of seasonal materials, the chefs here are holding a respectful attitude to make each meal, respecting each person with respect. The customer offers a good dish, which is not as good as the restaurant attached to the art center.
