INTERVENTIONSIN THE CITY

Building



Description of the strand:

Open call for “green” interventions in private areas that can serve as green hubs and can boost residents’ everyday life along with the city’s experience. This strand contributes to “Resilience strategy for Athens 2030” and specifically to the pillar “Green City”

 

Aims of the strand:

  • To encourage the collaboration among the residents of a block of flats or of adjoining buildings and the residents’ networking with organisations and professionals that possess a high level of expertise (engineers, architects, agriculturists).
  • To upgrade the bioclimatic aspect of the buildings, to create a better microclimate and to enrich the urban web with new typologies of green.
  • To support proposals that will strengthen residents’ social relationships, as they will maintain and monitor the interventions in order to secure their sustainability.
  • To highlight the cohabitation between private and public areas by intervening in private buildings that will transform the neighbourhood.
  • To activate human capital, local skills, and creativity.

The strand supports interventions such as:

  • Urban farming
  • Horizontal and vertical plantations on buildings’ communal areas
  • Bioclimatic green facades on balconies and party
  • Pocket gardens on empty lots and uncovered outdoor spaces
