THE

COMMITEE

The composition of the Jury reflects the inclusive, multidisciplinary spirit of the competition: The Jury brings together practicing and academic architects; furthermore, it includes a senior executive of the company, with excellent knowledge of the material application requirements and of their great potential in architectural innovation.

The Greek city, as collective work of architecture, requires restructuring and escalation of its components, to become better perceptible.

Looking from above, one gets the impression of a uniform, ashen layer, spreading over the landscape. This uniformity results both from the overwhelming use of the polykatoikia building typology, as well as from the application of white mortar finishing on most facades, to the point of ubiquity.
