We live in a city, which you can walk around. However, in the age of globalisation and the internet, we are losing connection in the neighbourhood and our connection relies on networks. Memories and history of individuals are detached from a land. As a result, we are losing familiar landscapes around us which affect the quality of our living environment. The academic study creates archives of buildings but they never tell why neighbours need the buildings. Stories and narratives are the keys to fill the gap between archives and collective memories. Working with a writer, the project tries to bring back those memories, which belong to a land. Paper is our material which can produce books, archives and architecture.
