From Khirokitia to Mars

Petros Lapithis, Lia Lapithi

Research output: Book/ReportBook


18th International Architecture Exhibition, 2023 – La Biennale di Venezia - Pavilion of Cyprus
How can we take on the first community of the Cyprus Aceramic Neolithic Khirokitia and use it as a steppingstone to address issues of social sustainability within a humanistic and cultural context, set on a platform towards a newly built environment that will be created on Mars? Operating under the premise that social sustainability can be attained through means of collaboration and common awareness, the exhibition aims to activate spaces in a three-dimensional and temporal manner in order to induce values of social and egalitarian participation. Khirokitians were curious and persistent, as we are today about exploring planet Mars. Our proposal takes you through matter, time and space.
