Presentation of our winning proposal “Actographies”, by the architectural web magazine Archetype.
The redesign of the park introduces to the metropolitan area of Volos a new point of reference, a new meeting point both for the citizens and for the visitors of the city. A multifunctional space where social activities can take place, where new functions and uses such as sports facilities, open-air amphitheater, open-air cinema, flea market, coffee place, lake canoe and workshops are combined with rest areas and interesting vegetated zones. The park is being designed and organized in thematic zones, which host different uses characterized by different vegetation. On that way, the park introduces many different zones of use to the visitors while attracting more people on it, unifying the area of the park with the new Museum of Argo, the University Campus on the north and the city center of Volos.
