Abstract

Athens, Greece occupies a significant role in the history of architecture as the birthplace of classical order. Its associated role in history, however, developed a sprawling city ignorant of its ancient architecture and organizational urban plan order. This congested metropolis is filled with brutal concrete apartment blocks and lack of green space, overall contributing to larger issues of congestion and heat island effect due to climate change. 

This thesis explores a development of a resilient Athens, equipped for its density whilst promoting sustainability. This thesis explores the design go an efficient city plan that no longer ignores unexcavated archaeological sites to create a poetic relationship of old city to new city while overall improving quality of life.
