The aim of this diploma thesis is to attempt to reconnect the city of Piraeus to the sea front through the creation of a series of multi-activity facilities along and across the Piraeus coastline. The intervention area focuses on the narrow coastal lane between the marine element and the coastal road of the Piraeus Peninsula. These facilities aim to make the inhabitants return to the forgotten coast for years, to restore the connection of the dense urban fabric to the natural landscape and the emergence of the cognitive wall that evolves on it
Studying the current situation of the seashore and trying to answer the above issues, it is proposed to create 3 piers, extension of the urban web across the coast, which act as a pavement to the sea. Reversing the image of the city by height, under the berths, levels of programmable leisure activities placed. These levels act as mediators at the exit of the city to the rugged rocky terrain of the coast and the sea. In the penultimate because you create a path that crosses the shore along, with intermediate stops. We approach the existing terrain as a patchwork of a monument of historical significance and an inaccessible extent that cannot be perceived as a continuation.
The overall approach focuses on the reactivation of the Piraeus coast and the conversion of this coastal zone into a recreational area, contact with the sea, sports, relaxation, a part of the fleet of Piraeus residents and a view of the city from a distance.
