The proposal of this thesis focuses on the design of a fish market in the city of Preveza (Greece), augmented with a research center and a small museum on Fishing and the Ambracian gulf, so that the whole could act as a super regional pole of knowledge - leisure - trade; an experimental landscape connecting primary and tertiary activity, which aims to bring to the fore the productive forces.

In Preveza, one of the smaller cities of Greece, located in the passage between the Ionian Sea and the Ambracian gulf, fishing could be booming. However, the primary production sector is in particularly downward levels and the general infrastructure is poor - there is not even a fish market in town! Within the broader context of insecurity, crisis and folding towards the birthplaces cities, the proposal of this thesis focuses on the design of a fish market in the city of Preveza, augmented with a research center and small museum on Fishing and the Ambracian gulf, so that the whole could act as a super regional pole of knowledge - leisure - trade; an experimental landscape connecting primary and tertiary activity, which aims to bring to the fore the productive forces, organizing the know-how of the past, offering to the present and providing  substantial infrastructure for the future.

The proposal placed in the New Port of Preveza, an unexploited construction of the dictatorship era, that dominates the waterfront of Preveza. With our fish market starts an attempt to activate, validate, format, and link the New Port with Preveza. The Marketplace is designed as a transition from the old to the new city, the traditional center to the hyperstrcture, the city and the man to nature and fish. On the platform of the New Port, that is shaped like a new earth, are born small concrete docks that accommodate the fishermen, the visitors and the researchers. The whole becomes one below hanging canopies, the observation bridge and the clock tower-well which stands as the  "Foros" (the tolls), the limit of all passes.
