un-finished is a transdisciplinary project. A study on the architectural archetype of the unfinished concrete building found everywhere in the Athens cityscape, turned to a performed archive. How to deconstruct and analyze the history of the rise up and maintenance of those structures? They are the basic concrete skeletons of Polykatoikia, the common building typology of Athens from the beginning of the 1930's and onwards. Whereas the majority of the cityscape has this typology under the facades and finishes, the unfinished buildings stand exposing only their architectural archetype. The view from and at those structures deliver the memory of a ruin.
