Panhellenic Architectural Competition of Asklipeios street in Trikala


SITE ANALYSIS

The current problem, of the characterized as pure pedestrian street Asklipeios, is the shift from a pedestrian zone with diverse commercial, economic and recreational activities in a pedestrian zone with predominant activity of entertainment and in particular of coffee. The aim of the new design approach is to reformulate the current conditions with architectural interventions which will contribute to the revitalisation of the region. The release of the facades of buildings and the siting of the pergola at the center of the pedestrian zone is the basic parameter of the conceptual design proposal. Pedestrian traffic is moved in front of the building blocks and in the main entrance of the pedestrian zone is created central square which can be renamed “square Rigas Velestinlis”. In the Panhellenic architectural contest held in 2005, the office has won the third prize.
