SUBJECT

 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.
