Eco-Forest (2nd Prize)

Eco-Forest is an entry for the D. Areopagiti competition that was asking for a design to negotiate the back facades of the buildings between Tsumi’s New Acropolis Museum and the Acropolis itself. The design proposes the creation of a green filter between the façades and the museum. That filter, on one hand is covering and unifying the back elevations of the existing buildings, on the other hand it is creating a ‘green pocket’ able to change the microclimate of the site.
