Today it is not the city but rather the camp that is the fundamental biopolitical paradigm of the West. Giorgio Agamben


In a forest area of Proština, part of South-East Istria between Prodol, Krnica and Škabići, an almost perfect square surface is detached by high stone walls from the rest of the landscape. This controlled interior of abandoned stanzia it now becoming a hiding place from ruling political party`s despotic machine for instrianisation of Istria.


House-camp, formerly agrarian housing complex, is now a haven of one family which is building it`s autonomy using two fundamental methods:


separation - part of topografy is bounded by high walls and is transformed into geometrical, euclidean space.


self-sufficiency  - added linear roof with solar panels is creating electrical energy, existing water-well is connected with roof gutters to collect rain water, workshops are situated in an economic part of the complex and most of the surface of the square remains suitable for agrarian production.
