Bringing harmony and sense to the surrounding context, the proposal by Kamvari Architects for the Bioclimatic School creates a simple linear movement across the site, looking inwards towards the heart of the school.

Re-Think Athens Competition Entry / Nikiforidis-Cuomo Architects

Courtesy of

The proposal, ‘ PubliCity: an urban neuron for a new city center’, for the Re-Think competition organizes a public space processing system which develops and expands like an “urban neuron”. Designed by Nikiforidis-Cuomo Architects, their concept becomes an entire living framework aiming to re-activate and revitalize the urban body. The system acts as a familiar, habitable and dynamic framework able to “contain” events and situations of both collective and individual actions.  More images and architects’ description after the break.
