Kavala Public Squares Competition

The project brief was the redevelopment of 2 public squares in the city of Kavala in northern Greece.

The first is in front of the old Tobacco House, a structure that was to house the Tobacco Museum. We proposed the installation of a glass prism-shaped building across from the museum. The largest area of the glass building would be undergound, housing the museum’s café, bookstore, and a monument honoring the tobacco workers as well as serving as the entrance to the museum.

The second square flanked an old Ottoman aqueduct. Our proposal was the construction of a underground garage that would help solve the parking problem of city, with a café on top looking over to the aqueduct.
