[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]For the Samotracia project, it looks like you gave your take about the passing of time …

I like to imagine that an object can last a hundred of years. The copper oxidizes slowly and becomes green with time. I like the idea that, instead of buying a new motorbike every five to six years, I can buy just one and see how it ages over time.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”14318″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1559317562731{margin-bottom: 0px !important;border-bottom-width: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1559319685251{margin-top: 0px !important;border-top-width: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;}”]

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]I also like the idea that cars and motorbikes can grow old gracefully as a consequence of the architectural rhythms of the city rather than the industrial mass production effects.[/vc_column_text][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”14318,14317,14348,14349″ img_size=”100×100″ onclick=”kalium_lightbox”][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/hdDy1WYOOhs”][vc_column_text]
