Athens, Greece

Welcome to OAC Athens!

Our challenge is to work on projects that will make a difference at the local level through a variety of scale and applications,through innovative, sustainable and functional design.

We answer and propose solutions to issues and pathologies identified in a specific environment (urban or otherwise), having architectural design as most prominent tool. From the inception of the project until the completion of its planning, we coordinate all stages of the process. We collaborate with other non-profit organizations, local goverment agencies as well as govermental and non-carriers.

Participatory design for the renovation of the courtyard area of the 7th Elementary and Junior High school of Agia Paraskevi and Artemonos Street by all the students, the teachers and the parents! Collaboration with CDP team.

This is an original educational process, with a particular pedagogical value, in which students and teachers, contact the site planning. They put themselves in the process of drafting a plan and become familiar with related methods by which this is produced. They also learn how to "communicate" their design proposal to the public through presentations, models, etc.
