The currentpicture of the "KRITON EFSTATHIOU DILAVERIS’ S POTTERY" does not resemble anything in the period of its prosperity. The last 13 years, there have been a series of events that led building to the depreciation and destruction. The "pottery II" is a "dark spot" for the city and need for its rescue and protection is imperative.
The factthat we live near the old factory, and we experience daily the state of abandonment and destruction of this industrial shell, and the interruption of city life in this center-point, prompted us to decide to choose this land and suggest a possible solution for the development of this complex of ceramics through the rehabilitation and integration of new uses for it.
Our primary goalis to reverse the unfavorable conditions and to stop the destructive path of the buildings and the entire estate Dilaveris.
Furthermore, analyzing the data and the needs of the region, we propose the integration of new uses on the existing shells, so that the building no longer constitutes "urban void" and to participate again actively in the daily life of the city.
Our proposalincludes among other things, the conversion of old factory into an Industrial Museum, establishing a public vocational training institutes which will operate as sculpture, photography, handmade jewelry making and decoration, a multipurpose room, two classrooms of 98 and 120 people, four shops and a second chance school.
