Presentation: Cobblestone paths of Makrinitsa

Department of Architecture, School of Engineering, Univ. of Thessaly, Pedion Areos

Five thematic routes across the cobblestone paths of Makrinitsa, introducing some of the most characteristic mansions, churches, water fountains and bridges of Pelion.

The project, which is the outcome of the elective course Narrative Trails, unfolds a playful activity for an on-site or off-site tour around the village. The proposals consist of an alternative "educational kit" suggesting thematic maps, collections of visual material and small-scale constructions to familiarize the visitor with the architectural heritage of Makrinitsa.

The event takes place in the context of the pilot project Designing [for] the Pelion routes that is held by the Building Structures Research Unit [ma[K]e] in the context of a multi-disciplinary collaboration between departments of the University of Thessaly and local cultural institutions.
