The Oslo School of Architecture & Design traveled to Thessaloniki and attempted to gain a deeper inside to this multicultural city.

Big Olive designed and staged two itineraries for the Masterstudio In Transit.
The Studio focuses on sustainable growth for communities hosting new arrivals, migrants and refugees.

On DAY I, Big Olive delivered an itinerary revealing the diverse social layers of the city. Points of interest included parts of the Western Wall of the city, social housing projects and refugee welcome centers and initiatives.

On DAY II, the School participated in a themed walk that highlighted architectural projects through the ages. Points of interest included Refugee housing of the interbellum era (Northern Wall), Roman Agora, Modiano Market and exapmples of ‘Polykatoikia’ typologies.
