The Fire Fight: Architecture is afraid of fire’s power to unapologetically destroy. Yet fire is fascinating, its continuous motion contradicts the static built world. On 12 February 2012 in Athens, anti-austerity demonstrators burnt 45 businesses via Molotov Cocktails including the Attikon Cinema. This architecture is a memory collector of a shared traumatic experience continuously reanimated by an unceasing fire, but the reinforced building withstands the burn in a resilient rather than destructive manner. 2012.
