Doxiadis Associates and their accociated partners, undertook the preparation of all drawings, reports and documents required for the rehabilitation of the central square of Almyros, a city of over 10,000 p., and the administrative centre of a major Municipality in Central Greece. First, a detailed topographical survey of the square was prepared together with an assessment of existing and programmed land uses around the square and in its immediate area. These studies were followed by complete architectural, landscape, structural and electromechanical studies. Based on an existing traffic study, alternative design concepts were prepared; these were then presented to the local authorities and the public to elicit their comments and ideas. Great effort was given to produce a unique design that supports the social life and encourages the economic growth of Almyros. Innovative sustainable energy-saving techniques were incorporated throughout the project. Tender documents plus health-and-safety studies were also prepared.
