The project is an architectural competition 1st prize, regarding the post-lignite era the mines in Western Macedonia, are about to enter. Its importance is that designs with nature 190ha site, in order to give it back to society and nature.
The concept derives from the longitudinal shape of the site that functions as an ecological corridor.

The need for environmental enrichment and enhancement of biodiversity, has leaded to manage the landscape as a system of fluxes that organizes and connects in synergy the spatial relationships with the individual habitats. The resulting landscape is a series of ecological itineraries with different characters and qualities offering cultural uses, sport facilities, cultivations and leisure.
The special atmosphere of the place is maintained, using three strategies: (i) biodiversity and ecological connectivity (ii) the water net (iii) the spatial organization of movements and stops and the new uses and constructions.
