Main subject of our diploma thesis, was to analyze and manage landscape as natural city infrastructure, a factory/production process rather than just focusing on natural and aesthetic values of it.
After choosing Eastern Attica as our case study, we followed an extensive analytical path which allowed us to categorize in different network grids natural and man-made characteristics of our area. This tactic, made possible for us to layout a map/diagram, ultimately a guide for what we call a “design acupuncture”. Each area in focus, is now analyzed both as a web of denser and sparser individual networks as well as a concrete object.
The combination of these new-found possibilities of analysis and our big interest on water processes, led us to the highlighting of a blue corridor through Eastern Attica. A connection across multiple points of interest(natural,cultural,recreational) which utilizes basic natural flows and is strengthened by city sewage, after a thorough cleansing in alternative water treatment plants across the area of interest.
