About the book
Architectonic abstractions from EXPO Milan Pavilions photographed by Pygmalion Karatzas.
Design is the first signal of human intention. Architectural design is a prime example of tangible and intangible connections between matter and the human spirit. The title of the series is a reference to Arthur Koestler’s seminal book and his concept of holons - something that is simultaneously a whole and a part. This fractal like relationship of architectonic elements is meaningful in different levels of scale and perspective such as “in and out”, “up and down”, “made up of and make up”. A single detail of a structure can include within it the essence of the whole building - the “ghost in the shell”. This collection consists of works from the EXPO Milan 2015 Pavilions.
