The former machine shop of Glavani and Kazazi, “the Hammer”, is located in Volos at 22 Papadiamanti Street, opposite the trains and today closed with sheet metal. Around this building there is a neighborhood that is forced to wake up every day next to a ruin of 6,540 sq.m. Even thought the neighborhood wants the building to be demolished, the proposal focuses on the minimum interferences in order to transform the building into an alive space. The former machine shop now belongs to the National Bank and the future buyer will lose the square meters of Thrakon Street as the building interrupts it. The cut of the plot in 3 pieces and its purchase by the Municipality and the University of Thessaly is the beginning of the proposal as it will be possible to buy it cheaper so that it can be reused as soon as possible. The program includes the production and consumption of theoretical and practical knowledge, materials and food. Dining and sports areas are also being designed while most of the building is being converted into a park.
