This project deals with the redevelopment of University Square in Volos, bounded by Dimitriados, Ermou, Pavlos Melas and Macedonian streets. Landmark in the area is Matsagos building, now owned by the University of Thessaly.
Admittedly there is a need for a place that combines academic uses, park, city square and places of attitude that will give life back to the track of the center of Volos.
The central idea was to create a green space and a piece of urban square, that are separated by a corridor along the square that connects the street with Demetrias Ermou Street.
Also 2 of the buildings around the square will be rebuilt and will be in use of university. The one on Makedonomahon st. will be the scene of an outdoor theater where the stands will be on the square. Another one on Ermou, will adhere to the complex Matsagos and used as a canteen. Both stone buildings will maintain the outer shell, will be reinforced statically and by changing the internal layout will be of new use to the area.
Finally, just below the stands a refreshment canteen will be created that for the needs of the theater. The square along the corridor will include the element of water as asymbol of the relationship of the city of Volos and the sea.
