Plateia Theatrou: Diversity & Cohesion

Plateia Theatrou: Diversity & Cohesion

International architectural competition for the recreation of the Theatrou square in Athens.

2010, 3rd prize

with Alexandra Stratou, Dionisis Zaharias.

 

The proposal celebrates local diversity: historical layering and continuity, dissimilar spatial envelopes, flows, cohabitation and tolerance, are used to reverse stagnation and engender a vibrant mixed use area.

A space generating system is devised using diversity and coherence.

In Plan: horizontal planes paved with different materials run perpendicular to the natural inclination and main circulation path.

In section: uniform material vertical surfaces act as boundaries to define stepped platforms for urban uses.

 

Collaborators: Theodora Moustaki, Ilias Pitsios, Nikos Efthimiopoulos, Melanie Alkidi
