DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Eco-tech Square of National Resistance

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Square

INSPIRATION:
The form of the new square faced as a leaf, in which, if someone look at it carefully and under magnification, he will find a vein system, a structure system, an information flow system. Adopting a system of ribs and in combination with the side road traffic flow , resulting a creation of green areas with a dynamic organic form, which exude mobility rather than immobility to the visitor.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The square will essentially be a "green filter" between the dense urban fabric of the city and the greenery, combining sunlight, air circulation and water.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The new public space adopts led technology for its lighting. The energy required for the lighting is supplied by the photovoltaic panels arranged in the pergola and photovoltaic films of the solar umbrellas. The lighting columns also provide free internet access through wifi and usb chargers for cell-phones and tablets.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design project started in October 2012 and finished October 2014. It was exhibited in 4th Design for Life in April 2015 in Athens. It was exhibited in How we Play exhibition in Center of Architecture in September 2015 in Philadelphia, U.S.A. It was exhibited in the International Architecture Society(IAS) & Habitat Environment Society of Asia Pacific(HESAP) in January 2016 in Shanghai, China and has been awarded the Silver Award.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Bioclimatic design, Urban and Site analysis, Photovoltaic Energy, Storm water use, Renewable energy. Including wooden structures, concrete forms, aluminum panels, re-claimed concrete floors, recycled materials, grass, flowers, trees.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
0.6 hectares of an existed square.

TAGS:
Green design, Sustainability, Urban design , Public Space, Led, P.V, Re-use of water

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In the area of the child playground there are small rain water collectors shaped like up-down umbrellas to collect the rain water for irrigation needs. Furthermore, the whole square is designed such a way that even the circulation routes can collect the rainwater for the same purpose. The architectural team has been in contact with the neighborhood, residences and pedestrians of what they expect from the new development of the square , this methodology was a vital tool in defining the initial design parameters of our design approach.

CHALLENGE:
The adoption of green technology and water recycle was among the main design parameters of the new public space. Through these the kids, the new generation of citizens, will learn from an early stage about the green technology, renewable sources of energy, recycle, reuse of rain water collection & sustainability.
