"Zenetos worked on the evolution of Agia Galini from a small fishing village to a settlement of 6,000 inhabitants, researching on a “structural system, which is responsive to the natural environment and the topography of the area.” The new architecture singularity enhances the existing specificity of the landscape and both are identified as key “accomplices” for tourism development. The issue of size and proportions is controlled, though “while under this proposed structure, the plan is always an integrated sum, in all of the distinctive phases of development.”

Si l’on fait un effort de « rétro-futur », on constate sans mal que la superarchitecture des années 1950-1970 était majoritairement dessinée dans l’hypothèse d’une congruence et d’une continuité architecturale des systèmes d’infrastructures qui n’est pas advenue. Archigram avec Instant City, ou Zenetos avec son « urbanisme électronique » proposaient une vision dématérialisante de l’architecture comme promesse de communication universelle.
