Therefore, this second prize winning proposal by ECONOMOU Architects & Engineers + Georgios Artopoulos was designed to accommodate and create spatially organized activities and lived experiences, in order to host actions of collective learning and creative occupations relevant to the local natural resources, always aiming for the generation of a new, shared identity of Latsia.

Development of the 'GSP' Area Winning Proposal / Yannis Kizis, Costandis Kizis, Thymis Dougkas, Gregory Patsalosavvis

At the competition’s program, the concepts square and park take turns, describing a project of multiple uses and of a mixed texture. The primary target of architects, Yannis Kizis, Costandis Kizis, Thymis Dougkas, and Gregory Patsalosavvis is the change of the scenery: a green land expanded in relieved territory, with strong character, with the dominance of nature, a new experience of a specific public space.
