Distinction for the design of the "Balkan" square in the city of Thessaloniki in Greece
The redevelopment of Strebenioti’s military camp, is of great importance for the city of Thessaloniki. The area is surrounded by the most important public buildings of the municipality, such as the Town Hall, the cathedral, several schools, as well as the most important sports facilities of the municipality. By regeneration, most times, we refer to the aesthetic upgrading of the image of the city. However, in this case study, we are ethically obliged to answer a wide range of questions. The site needs more than the design of a simple square. It requires a landscape which will serve as more than a symbol for the city and its global image.
