EXPLORING THE KIFISSOS RIVER AND FALIRON BAY IN ATHENS

Representing Flux Factory, Chen Tamir and I joined two Athienian collectives Urban Void and Network for Nomadic Architecture to begin an investigation and intervention in the Kifissos River and Faliron Bay, in Athens. This water system is a vertiable environmental disaster, its problems compounded by Olympic '04 infrastructure development.
This is just the beginning of a long-term project. We began with two explorations: a boat trip through the bay, and a walking trip along the river.

To begin to collect our thoughts, we've begun an 'open source' book. You can read our contributions, guidebooks of sorts, here and here. We've also been collecting information online:
