Museum for Underwater Antiquities in Piraeus, Athens, Greece
Museum for Underwater Antiquities
11 Jul 2013
Design: Sane Architecture + DaSein
Museum for Underwater Antiquities Greece

The architectural concept is based on the intention to expose the antiquities recovered from the sea bed not as meaningless, dead relics, but as objects partially recovering the original significance. The duality of the architectural concept emphasizes the initial functional duality: a building for grain storage and a component of a transport network.

Venice Biennale Greek Pavilion – 25 Aug 2012
Commissioners / Curators: Panos Dragonas, Anna Skiada
‘MADE IN ATHENS’
The Greek participation for the 13th International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia focuses on the particular dynamic of Athens during a period of economic meltdown.
Contemporary Athens is a city of strong contradictions: It is a city whose particular identity was shaped during post-World-War-II reconstruction. A city which has at its disposal an exceptionally talented cadre of young architects, international in orientation, well educated and with a wealth of professional experience.

Placebo Pharmacy
The design process for this large (600m2) supralocal pharmacy forced us to shift our viewpoint and come up with a virtual building—a placebo pharmacy. The octagonal shape of the existing structure was re-formed into a cylinder in order to create a spiral which seeks to converse with the rapid motion on Vouliagmenis Avenue, the urban artery on which the building stands.

Marble Mural Athens
The piece is a hymn to marble; a 10 x 2m wall consisting of 7 marble pieces of different origin, natural history, color, texture and image. These marble pieces are treated with various traditional and digital techniques of workmanship that mingle with the inherent material narrations; holes, hidden and visible cuts, two and three dimensional relief, digital and handmade print, imagery from the past and the future, light.

Theatre Square Athens
This Greek Architecture practice were awarded an honourable mention for their proposal for the Theatre Square competition in Athens, Greece. The square is a small urban space, surrounded by buildings on all sides, in a problematic area of central Athens. The design proposal is dedicated to the magic of nature: an urban room realized as a ‘secret garden’. Tall palm trees create a landmark on at the scale of the city.
