The rule and the cell
An introduction to two series of projects of the Antonas Office; the first part concerns the projects that are done mostly in Athens under the title of Urban Protocols: micro legislative interventions and urban apparatuses are proposed as formed sets of rules that may function in an abandoned city center. The second part is related to a number of projects that investigate the minimum dwelling and the difference that can be detected in the concept of withdrawal today.
