For me Potemkin
is the starting point of revolution. I am continuing mentally attached with Potemkin
and seeing where the revolution is taking me. Potemkin
stands in the crossroads where the modern man has to define his relationship with the nature. We have all the tools needed for a sustainable solution of human existence in the technological world. Now we also have all the tools to destroy the world. Architects, artists, urban planner, environmental planners and humanists must find their position and responsibility in this turning point. Potemkin
stands as the Acropolis to be the post industrial temple to think of the connection between the modern man and nature. I see Potemkin
as a cultivated junk yard situated between the ancient rice fields and the river with a straight axis to the Shinto temple.
Park for post-industrial meditation.
