Syros — main island of the Cyclades. Hermopolis, modest capital of a humble island. The landscape is hilly, barren and dry. This soft, mountainous, reddish-brown piece of earth is covered with hundreds of intersecting lines: they are walls, laboriously combined by human hands. Walter Pichler and Michel Würthle managed to create an idealist-archaic-reduced house in a beautiful place, which does undogmatic and unedited service without having a task (Vera Purtscher).
