The real Fake house 1, also known as the fixed timber house, published in Metalocus 23, architecture magazine and presented on its cover.

On August 11, 2005 a structure was located in Kalamaki, on Mt. Pelion, not far from the sea. The wood frame had been erected, i.e., the construction was in the phase before concrete is poured into the moulds, which in Greece, are customarily made out of boards. The structure was photographed for the first time. On August 16 of the same year —the existing condition of the wood frame was documented, photographed yet again, and videotaped. Design blueprints created from that construction stage, using data and measurements obtained during the visit, although the structure, within the space of a few days, was no longer recognizable.

A restoration study based on the original records was then operated: the study preserves, with archaeological rigor, the frozen image of the structure exactly as it was documented in August 2005, even though the appearance of the structure had already drastically changed. The plan aspires to create some kind of temporary living quarters in the interior space defined by the wood frame and the excavated area under the same space. *

Antonas what do you think about a nomad city? The cost of supporting the sedentary cities is large and negatively affects the environment. Cities should move, like people. Architecture should be ephemeral. What do you think? Could we do something?
