When talking about information, the idea of creating an underground space it’s quite understandable: it represent a safer space, with the right temperature and designed to protect our most important data to bepreserved for the future. The project Underground information chambers [mining 01100100 01100001 01110100 01100001] by Eva Papamargariti and Maro Tsagka takes place in the mountain of Penteli, famous for its flawless white marble, which was used to build the Acropolis and other ancient monuments.

H.Th. Wijdeveld. 15 Miles into the Earth, 1944. NAI Collection, WIJD 470
It cannot be denied that Wijdeveld’s attitude was experimental. Especially in the latter years of his life he concentrated on large-scale, utopian projects in which he was seeking for a new relationship between mankind, nature and culture. He situated this 1944 design for an international geological research centre in a shaft in the earth at a depth of 15 miles.
