The development of the Greek modern city is expressed by the enlargement to neighbour regions, making them part of the city. Mainly in Athens, this is expressed by the construction of main root connections (extension of the Attica road to nearby cities such as Eleusina ) and with the suburban railway. This extension creates the proper circumstances for a development of the city.
In this project, a library building is presented in Eleusina, a site described as a hub, an interchange because of its geographical position which is on the zone that joints Attica and Peloponnesus.
We are being witnesses of a transitional stage, where industry gives place to a new era. This project is placed on the last parcel of the industrial zone of Eleusina, an abandoned pier that was used to load ships with bauxite. The mark from its previous usage is visible.
