SHOPPING MALL
IN PLATANIAS, CRETE

2nd Prize
in architectural competition
by invitation

The concept of this project is simply the integration of a commercial archade in the meshy complex of Platanias, a small vacation town in Crete. The arcade attacts the potential client in the mall, and brings him to a glade, where he or she can rest and have drinks or food. This open air arcade that is the central spece of the mall is semi-covered by a series of shades that provides a pleasurable microclimate in combination with the green roofs anf the vegetation of the free spaces.
