This dissertation concerns the creation of a centre of environmental update for the citizens of Larissa and the biological cleaning of water of the river Pineios. The facilities of this centre will constitute a ‘Water Bridge’ that will indirectly unite the two parts of Larissa city. This project concerns not only the river banks of the Pineios, but also the city itself. There will be a complex of buildings where the citizens will be informed and updated about issues concerning the lack of water in the river and the whole process of its biological cleaning.
Another aspect of the project is the removal of the existing footbridge and its replacement by a ‘water bridge’ on the northwest limits of the city. This footbridge is both a limit and an obstacle for the visitors and the activities that take place there. The first objective of this proposal is to attract as many citizens as possible on the riverbank and the other one is the future development, expansion and
landscaping of the abandoned river bank.
