A Tall Building
at the port of Piraeus – the Piraeus Municipality
belongs in the urban area of the city of Athens
which has a population of 4,000,000 – is abandoned for more than 30 years. It
is 22-storey building, 84 m.
tall and it is known as “Piraeus
Tower”. It is often
called as “the sleeping giant” due to its abandonment. The only tower of the area
is “sleeping” in one of the bigger ports of Mediterranean
that presents a dynamic growth the last decades.
There is a challenge, therefore, in order for the Tower to become a landmark at the port of Piraeus and to be highlighted, with its modernisation, as one of the most important architectural buildings not only for the city of Piraeus but for the whole city of Athens.The Competition Proclamation is available for Downloading HERE (pdf in zip)
