[UN]FINISHED Walk uncovers fragments of the narratives concealed in the concrete structures of a small selection of unfinished buildings in central Athens. These buildings, which can be found all over the city, are exposing the skeleton otherwise hidden under the facade finishes of the buildings composing the surrounding cityscape, the so-called polykatoikia: a multi-storey apartment building. As architectural archetypes closely linked to the history of the construction of modern Athens, they are signs of invisible financial, political and social structures defining the physical appearance of the city.
