Athens, Paris, Rhodes Island
We are a team of like-minded independent researchers and educators who want to test the architects’ potential in dealing with complex -and often conflicting- urban realities. We advocate a context-specific; trans-disciplinary; hands-on; holistic approach to planning, by creating meaningful encounters for communication and exchange ultimately aiming to make architecture informed by what it is to be fully human.

Can we talk about Eleonas?


Engaging locals in circular economy practices to dismantle phenomena of social disparity and spatial injustice.

  • Site-specific cases

Our team coils around the principles of circularity. We envision a new mindset on material culture, one that does not solely rely on new resources, but finds comfort in appropriating what is already there. We embrace circular thinking for its potential to connect the socio-economical and physical links and appease conflict. Our endeavor begins in Eleonas; a derelict, post-industrial site in Athens currently accommodating the city’s informal scrap trade as well as its vast weekly-run flea market. Our primary project is to explore the opportunities and to identify the challenges of establishing a series of circular practices in the area, while also dismantling phenomena of social disparity and spatial injustice. We plan to do so through collaborative city-making, engaging with local stakeholders, academics, professionals and students in a series of ‘work and play’ events to discuss and to plan together socially and economically sustainable activities for the future.
