The study area plays a key-role in the articulation of the connections between the Piraeus area and the neighboring areas of Drapetsona and Keratsini. Despite the seemingly homogeneous features of these urban systems, the urban memories accumulated within the urban section need to find a way out. This fact represents the main target of the project. The aim of the design is to create urban character in order to turn these urban tissues to the sea. At the same time, the urban character is supposed to vary, in order to respond to the different spatial as well as urban conditions of the context.
