Greek team wins Museum of Underwater Antiquities competition at Central Port in Piraeus

A team of five Greek architects has been awarded first place in an international competition to reinvent an old silo building at the Central Port in Piraeus, Attica.

The competition, which was launched by Piraeus Port Authority, invited teams to reinterpret the silo into a Museum of Underwater Antiquities and the surrounding space (180,000 sq m in total) into an inviting public space.

This external area is currently isolated from the local community but the architecture competition challenged entrants to reinvent the space into a free outdoor entertainment venue.

The winning team (318531) included:

Adonopoulos Evagelos
Veta Thalia
Gavalas George
Riga Maria-Kiriaki
Stamouli Anastasia

President and CEO of Piraeus Port Authority SA, Mr. George Anomeritis, said of the decision: "Today is a special day in the process of converting the Port into a Gate of Culture and Tourism for visitors and residents of the City. 2013 will be the year of completion of all studies and notices for what we have agreed on the establishment of the Cultural Coast of Piraeus.”
