The course focuses on the phenomena of urban cuts which are created by infrastructures. Infrastructures enabling mobility are crucial elements for the development of cities. Railways and highways connect places in the global level thus integrating cities within extended urban networks. At the same time they divide the urban layout on the local level creating barriers within the city. The workshop will investigate variations of interventions which will allow the coexistence of the two characters. Within this context , Krafsidonas river and Volos railway zone will become the main field of research and intervention.
