"The traces of peoples and their past constructions form layers of lines that are superimposed on each other. While some persist, others have faded away. 

On the plot where the new contours of PHI Contemporary are inscribed, this link between past, present and future inspired the first lines and surfaces composing this project. Like a palimpsest, we read this place through its layers and successive traces, seeking to create a dialogue between what used to be , what is and what will be.

By decomposing and analyzing the multiple subtractions identifying the plot, the project finds its origins in the traces of the past. From an empirical selection of these lines, some have reappeared back in the plans on the new PHI Contemporary."
